COUNCIL NOTES -From the June 12, 2019 Meeting

Meeting was called to order at 6:32 pm. Pastor led a devotion on Romans 3:23 by asking if we were truly spiritual. The answer is no--we have to become more like Jesus and less like ourselves. Spirituality includes: reflective reading, continuous repentance, total stewardship, fervent prayer, and growing in a faith community. Pastor led us in a prayer. Council members in attendance - Bobby Leggett, Jerry Gass, Sheri Riley, Leta Garcia, Hal Switzer, Claudia Smith, Norman Eubank, Medora Beckmann, and Karen Wagner.

Time was given to read over the minutes from the April meeting. Corrections to minutes brought up by Norman were noted. Karen made a motion to accept the minutes as corrected. Hal seconded. Approved. Correction under new business from Leta deferred (abscended) to abstained. Leta made motion to accept minutes and Hal seconded.
