Nov-Dec 2014 Mission Activities

Thank you for making the Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. We contributed 40 boxes to be distributed all over the world.

We supplied 23 food boxes to people in this area for Thanksgiving. Because you care, Turkeys plus the trimmings were flying out of here on the Sunday prior to Thanksgiving. Special thanks to Food Lion (turkeys) and Tull Hill Farms (sweet potatoes) for their generosity.

We are planning on a repeat for Christmas Sunday, December 21. Food boxes with ham and plenty of sides will be given to names supplied by the Salvation Army. Donation boxes are in place at the entrances to the church on all levels.

Please remember our Giving Tree, which provides names of children who need gifts! We obtained 20 names from the Salvation Army, and these gifts were delivered on December 12. We still have plenty of children’s names from other local sources for which you can purchase buy gifts. The remaining gifts are due on Sunday, December 21.

Annual Congregational Business Meeting

The annual Congregational Business Meeting of 2014 will be Sunday, November 23, immediately after worship. The recommended 2015 budget and board officers will be presented for voting. All members are encouraged to attend and vote.

Called Congregational Business Meeting, May 4, 2014

At the called congregational business meeting on Sunday, May 4, the church voted to approve the Bylaws Team and Board’s recommendation that established a team of people to review the Senior Pastor instead of all of the elders review ing the Senior Pastor.

The team will be comprised of three Elders (selected by the Elder Council), three Deacons (selected by the Deacon Council), and three members at large (selected by Board Chair and Vice Chair) with all nine members being approved by both the Personnel Team and the Pastoral Relations Team. The selected Elders initiate the first meeting, and the team selects its own chair at its first organizational meeting.

The team will be formed by June 1 and will provide written evaluation and salary recommendation to the Personnel Team by September 1.

Dr. Johnson Is Regional Chair of Commission on Ministry

In November 2013, the NC Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Region’s Commission on Ministry (COM) team appointed Dr. Johnson as the COM Chair. This team interviews perspective ministers who are applying for ordination or commissioning (formerly known as licensing). They also periodically meet with commissioned ministers to encourage their ministry. They evaluate clergy seeking to transfer from other denominations into the Christian Church and provide guidance to them. The team considers matters of clergy ethics. They also guide Disciples seminary students associated with the NC region.
