To our good shepherds,
 
When we ask, “how are you,” your church staff really wants to know.  How about hitting replay and letting us know what’s good and what’s challenging in your lives right now.  We’re here to listen, celebrate, and commiserate.

  • Report of the Nominating Committee for leaders for the Governing Board and Endowment Committee
  • Determine commissioners for the online Synod Assembly
  • Treasurer’s report with financial summary from 2020 and the Governing Board’s recommended 2021 budget
