Greetings, Pastors, CFO’s and Communications contacts:
Mission Center conference on Saturday, Nov. 11, at Shawnee congregation at 11:00 am. Business meeting at 11, followed by pizza lunch. We will have inter-generational table activities after lunch. I had previously advised that Craig Lenfestey would be our guest minister for the day. I have been advised Craig will be leaving church employment in November and transitioning back to Maine, thus he will be unable to be with us. While his last official day is December 22, he will be using accumulated vacation for December.
The November conference will be the last time to submit any proposed legislation for the 2019 World Conference, as the deadline for submission of legislative items is before our next fall conference.
Church Updates is a church communication tool developed by church members in Independence. Bountiful Mission Center uses it as does the Grove City congregation. This is a free program, allowing communications in four categories – News, Pray, Serve and Give – for the information of all who have signed up for it. I’ve been subscribed to the Bountiful program for two years or so and I can keep up with their prayer requests, activities in congregations and MC and service needs.
I’m wondering if this would be a good addition for Western Ohio. Each congregation could add their own activities,prayer requests, etc., to the site and it would go to all who have signed on for it. I get an email every Thursday advising of how many new items are available or, in the case of today,advising there are no updates from last week. While it wouldn’t eliminate the emails I send out, it would reduce them quite a bit.
If you would like to take a look at it, go to churchupdates.org and check it out. Let me know what you think.
