Council Considerations

He provided a packet with informational postcard and seeds. As part of NCD leadership Greg wants to see if there is congregational interest.
  3. Communion Rail Redesign -met with a contractor about reducing the budget for the project.
  4. Narthex Remodel -waiting on a carpenter’s estimate to build the drop down tables, maybe look into selling the extra pews instead of repurposing the pews.

  7. Synod Assembly – May 5th & 6th
  8. Retreat – Date April 27th & 28th
