This Sunday after worship we will hold a special congregational meeting to consider taking the next steps of looking into the possibility of renting out space in the Ark building to raise additional funds for our church and its ministries.
We will be asking for permission from the congregation to actively pursue a rental arrangement and come back with a contract for congregational approval in the near future. We will also detail the up-front costs we may incur before any actual rent is realized. We also need to discuss how to maintain our staffing levels with Victoria as our Pastor for Children and Youth. Currently our budget line and special appeal giving from last year will pay her salary through November 2.
I hope you can make time to come to this important meeting! We sense the Spirit’s movement as we take practical steps to live into our action plan as well as provide the needed funds to maintain our beautiful campus.
