Firstly…New Year blessings to all,
December was a month of activity, and of financial concerns. We began the month facing a large deficit and spent much of our Council time not only trying to find ways to overcome the deficit but also how this might implicate our 2014 budget. As Council Circle, we are challenged to be the “visionaries” of the church and, of course, that vision has to be affordable.
As the month progressed, we were humbled by the generosity of the congregation, the Thrift Shop, the UCW and, when all the figures are tallied, I think we will have good news to share.
Our “First-Wed.-of-the-month Soup and Sandwich lunch” continues to provide outreach and friendship opportunities. Please come and join us!
As part of our vision of being a Center for Spiritual Growth, we are excited to be part of the live streaming of the Epiphany Exploration happening in Victoria. Such an amazing technological world we live in!
