Called Session Meeting

Attending:    Lynne Hoerter, Marcia Ladd, Wes McGraw, Stephanie Miller, Michelle Morehouse, Ed Park, Chuck Rickard, John Walkup, Mindy Douglas Adams (moderator), Jack Zollinger (Treasurer), Mary Donna Pond (clerk)

The meeting was called to order at 9:05 a.m. in the narthex of North Chatham School.  Mindy led the group in prayer.  It was determined that a quorum was present.

The Property Committee proposed the following motion: 

Increase the previously approved loan amount of $76,000 to $92,000.  The total cost of the land is $192,000.  Salem Presbytery is giving us $100,000 which will be paid to the Lindleys.  The $92,000 loan will cover the rest of the cost: $76,000 to the Lindleys and $16,000, previously paid to the Lindleys as earnest money, returned to the Property Fund.

The motion, coming from a committee, did not require a second and was approved without dissent.

The Personnel Committee requested retroactive approval for a 5% salary increase for Kim Prendergast, effective May 1, 2008.  This amount was budgeted and does not require any additional allocations.  The motion, from committee, did not require a second.  It passed without dissent.

The meeting was adjourned with prayer.

Respectfully submitted,


Mary Donna Pond
