Items to be left in main storage areas should be clearly marked with either owner’s name or the ministry’s name.

Special Business Meeting – 9:05 am | Sunday, June 24th | Sanctuary – We are excited about how the Lord is working in and through our
fellowship!  Last week there was a positive vote (Yes: 89, No: 11, Abstain: 3) to hire Hiller Architectural Group for the proposed building project.  Due to time constraints, we mentioned that there would be a follow-up meeting.  At this special business meeting, now scheduled for June 24th, we’ll be seeking approval of the specifics of the building project as summarized in the four-page handout distributed at the June 3rd meeting. A ballot vote will be taken.  Copies of the handouts are available at the Information Desk if you were unable to attend the June 3rd meeting.  Approval to proceed to the construction phase will come at a later date after we receive competitive bids from building contractors.  Let us continue to be in prayer for God’s direction.
