The St. Peter Council met on April 21, 2022. Everyone shared God-Sightings and respectful communication guidelines were discussed. The Task Force shared a request regarding small groups being able to bring individual lunches/snacks to be eaten during activities. The Task Force was in favor of allowing small groups to bring their own lunches/snacks. The council discussed this request and approved a motion to support the Task Force recommendation. This is a change from when we decided to stop sharing meals together two years ago. We are excited to continue to move forward in positive and healthy ways! We realize this continues to be hard for some people, but we are still mindful of risks and need to be respectful of changes that have occurred in our faith community.
An Endowment Team update was given, and we are delighted to announce we have surpassed our goal of raising $25,000, which allows us to transfer funds to the ELCA Endowment Fund Pooled Trust. Thank you!!
Council liaisons were assigned for different missions. Also, a ‘Key Policy’ was reviewed, discussed, and approved. It reflects the need for more security, controlled access to the building, and allows for appropriate access for individuals and teams.
Note: You will continue to receive regular council updates in this email. These updates include the significant information from the most recent meeting. If you would like the “official” minutes, you may reply to this email and Carrie can send them to you. Copies of all council and team meeting minutes that we receive can be found in the binder marked “Council Reports” that is kept below the bulletin board in the narthex.
