Life Stewardship

 

March 13th Council Update

 

Old Business

  • Pastor provided an update on the continuing review of the membership rolls. A common theme heard from several people whom he has visited was that people had their feelings hurt in the 2009 – 2013 time period when the church was separating from the ELCA. Although many of these members still consider themselves members of Emmanuel, they do not attend here or elsewhere. Pastor made it clear that his door is open if they need anything and encouraged them to worship. Some have indicated that they are worshiping elsewhere and have asked to have their names removed from the rolls.

New/Continuing Business

  • Council has asked that Stewardship oversee an accounting for non-cash benevolences such as the TP collection, Souper Bowl collection of canned goods, etc. We will each make a list of what we can remember, and we will compare lists. Bill offered to create a tracking sheet for groups to fill out to help track non-cash benevolences.
  • The college mailings are sent out 4X/year; before Lent, beginning of April for finals, fall for back to school, and Advent. At the current time only two students have provided their college addresses for the mailings. Bob “volunteered” to get the treat and provide a note for the April college mailing. This should be given to Peggy Lewis.
  • Bill will write an e-news article once the 1stquarter benevolence selections have been chosen and the green sheets submitted.
  • Danette will write a short e-news article on the Stewardship theme.
