Trustee Meeting May 2016
The Treasurer's report for January through April 2016 showed a great improvement in income from pledges over last month's report - currently at 99.3% of budget. Total income to date is at 97.4% and total expenses to date are at 98.8% of budget which is below last year at this time probably due to a mild winter and less snow removal.
Ross is working with Sally and office staff to create an updated website for the church with the goal of having it completed by September. It is important to have a vibrant website for many reasons including keeping the members of the congregation who are away connected with the church, connecting with and communicating with the community and attracting new members.
