It’s August! Summer is about over, kids will soon be headed back to school, the hot weather will give way to beautiful fall days and cool evenings…well, that’s the theory.
Your Board of Directors has been busy the last couple of months:
- The Children’s Ministry Team hosted an outstanding VBS in June. Twenty-eight children attended, including 12 visitors. Everyone had an excellent time, learning how Jesus is always there to rescue us! There were 19 adults who helped out throughout the week. Thanks to everyone for an excellent job!
- Sgt. Newburg from the Murfreesboro Police Department visited with us discussing church safety and security. About 20 people attended. I outlined some of his key points in the article below.
- Some upcoming events include a Junior Ranger Program at Stones River Battlefield on August 5th and Rally Day on August 26th.
- The Board of Directors will begin work on next year’s budget starting in August. Each Director will work through this year’s budget and prepare a proposal for next year. Our goal is to finalize a budget for presentation to the voters at a Congregational Assembly in October/November timeframe, and have an approved budget before the fall holidays.
As you probably heard, our construction loan is paid off!! We will have a celebration on August 12th and get together to praise God for this wonderful blessing.
Enjoy the final days of summer and see you in church!
