Following a wonderful continuing education presentation by Troy Lesher-Thomas focused on leadership and emotional dynamics the evening before that throughout the morning, Mindy Douglas called the Joint Meeting of Elders and Deacons to order at 11:30 a.m. and led an opening prayer.

As there was no formal business to be considered, Mindy asked each Elder to say which church committee they were accountable for, explaining that not all committees are chaired by Elders but each committee does have an Elder assigned to it for purposes of communication and connection.

Mitzi celebrated the work that the Deacons do among the congregation and how many people have expressed their appreciation for the care that is given.

Mary Donna reminded both boards that the church website is a treasure chest of information and is a valuable tool for communication.

Lynne moved that the meeting be adjourned.  Rachel seconded the motion which passed without dissent.  The meeting was closed with prayer at 11:45 a.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Mary Donna Pond, Clerk of Session
