This was a wonderful service - So grateful for this church and congregation in our lives!
Is the church office still open during the week?
No the church is closed.
Will the congregational meeting be recorded and available later?
the church office is closed that is
Hello Catherine Routt! Good to see you!
Eileen, I can’t seem to unmute myself. It says the host has me muted. Waugh!
I cannot umute either.
Eileen we can not unmute ourselves
Will the congregational meeting be recorded and available to watch later?
The meeting IS being recorded.
Great minutes Clare!
Our church staff has done such a fantastic job It has been a blessing!
Friends and family who are teachers who’ve transitioned to online all are facing significant
Is someone recording the attendance on Zoom since ushers aren't there to count?
oops, Continued time demands. how are Dave, Eileen and the staff doing?
I agree on terrific work by staff.
The hardest thing for me is the lack of face-to-face connection with congregation members.
Pastoral care is not quite the same on the phone as in person. I worry that some of you may need support but are not reaching out to us.
? Is there activity with respect to inter-faith earth ministry ?
The 10% total Outreach budget is our congregation's commitment to tithing.
In my view, the approach laid out by Lauren is the right approach at this stage - our goal as a church is to continue programs and keeping that objective as a North Star is a great way to guide thinking. In addition, is probably too early to make defensive changes although the volatility of the situation may warrant such actions in the future.
I agree with Steve's comment
I make a motion to approve this budget
Did the new church website make it into the budget and if so how much was requested?
On behalf of Outreach Board - all our funds are currently committed. We will be doing agency evaluations in the coming year.
Excellent idea Judy!!!!
Thanks to Ben, Loren and all on excellent budget presentation -
Agreed, adding in Rita and Dave who have also worked hard on the budget along with others
Hope we will add any necessary funds for website. In this new world, online resources are important.
Well done to Dave, Eileen, Rita and the whole staff for responding with such high quality.
Agree with Sherilyn to find the funds for an upgrade to the website.
Thank you for the transparency Rita.
Do we incur extra janitorial expenses as a result of the extension of our Hotel de Zink shelter in place? Do we see this extending into May?
Hotel de Zink will not extend into May.
Outreach Board has agreed to defer agency payments of $16,000 that should be going out this month and Outreach has always been an important part of this church ministry.
did our savings take a big or material hit during the market downturn?
Are we still paying those who do our coffee and landscaping since they count on the money?
Carolyn G Mitchell
Thank you Dave, Eileen, Joe, Jenny, Ben,, Lauren, Rita for you dedication and skills. Stay well all. I love seeing you all on Sundays. Lynn Mitchell
I agree with Elizabeth!
I agree with Elizabeth’s comment
I agree with Elizabeth’s comments

We agree with Elizabeth
I agree with Elizabeth
Which group makes the decision to discontinue payment to our vendors?
I agree with Elizabeth
Thank you so much. Great meeting. It takes quite an effort to pull all of this information together. Your work is appreciated.
I agree the workers need full coverage — in whatever ways maximizes their income and assurance they will be rehired to the same level as before the pandemic.
My gardener has switched to tree maintenance, which is permitted and important.
If the barista can qualify for unemployment she’ll get more. I was turned down for unemployment for my two part time jobs, twice now. So we can’t be sure she’ll get unemployment. It’s very quixotic. And NO WAY to call EDD to get information on why the turn down!
Great visual aide, Bing!
Thank you everyone for a great meeting!
aid, I mean.
Thanks to all for all your work on this meeting.
Thank you, everyone!
