Pastor's Report
Looking ahead to 2010 The year 2009 saw a great expansion in our ministry to children and youth. In February 2009 IPC and Harbor Light churches began a Kids’ Club on the campus of Hirsch Elementary School. This is a Christian ministry of music, games and Bible teaching for the many Hirsch students who are hungry to learn about God. Now we are on the Hirsch campus on Tuesday afternoons for the Homework Club and Monday afternoons for the Kids’ Club. In the Fall of 2009 we launched the IPC Youth Performing Arts Club (YPAC) for children to produce music and drama. In December they put on a Christmas musical. “Radio J.O.Y.” and occasionally sing in our Sunday worship services. The Tuesday evening program, WeFIL (Weaving Faith Into Life) has grown to around twenty five children in the pre-school through sixth grades. Our Junior High Youth Group meets on Sunday evenings and joins with Wyld Life, the Junior High ministry of Young Life at Centerville Pres., every other week. Our nursery, too, has been growing under the supervision of Fauzia Kamal, who sometimes has nine toddlers and babies under her loving care. Fauzia is a professional early childhood education specialist. Our Music Director Barbara Herrington left us in May 2009 to join her husband in the State of Maine. We are blessed to have Jonathan Fadner, a graduate in music from UC Berkeley, join us to direct our Kenaniah Choir and the Irvingtones band as they lead us in worship. The Tri-Cities Free Breakfast Program continues to break records in the numbers of guests and of volunteers. It has on occasion served a free, hot, sit-down breakfast to 250 guests in one morning. The Director, Linda De Stigter, will resign in March 2010. Over the years, God has been

Page 4

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church faithful to raise up leadership and resources for this program, and volunteers are stepping forward to join the leadership team. Financially, IPC ended 2009 with a $10,986 budget deficit, which is better than what we planned. Session has been able to reduce some of our expenses for 2010. The 2010 budget is in your annual report. Missions is the heart of the church. In 2010 we began to work with Sisters in Service to help the women and girls who suffer desperately in many parts of the world. Our SIS prayer group is focusing on the country of Sudan. In the summer 2010 we plan to send a group to visit Hope Unlimited in Campinas, northwest of Sao Paolo, Brazil. IPC has supported Hope Unlimited for years. God has blessed Hope with great success in the very difficult work of rescuing street children from the cities of Brazil Respectfully submitted Pastor Michael Boyland

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church

The session is responsible for the mission government of a particular church. This comprehensive responsibility includes the receiving of members, providing for worship, supervising the educational program, establishing the annual budget, providing for the management of the physical property ( building, grounds, equipment and furnishings), general administration, staff supervision, working with the deacons, keeping accurate rolls of the members, maintaining relationship with the higher governing bodies of the church, and leading the congregation outward in evangelism and mission. (From the Presbyterian Church Book of Order). The session of Irvington Presbyterian Church met in 2009 for 11 stated regular meetings on the 4th Thursday of each month. There was no meeting for the month of July giving Pastor much needed time off. The Session also held 9 special meetings for receiving new members, for budgets, for visioning, and changing insurance. Two congregational meetings were held in 2009. One in February and the Second in December. The February 8 congregational meeting was for the purpose of conducting the annual business meeting of the church: (1) receiving the annual report; (2) electing the Corporation officers – President Leila Kalin, Secretary Jim Madsen, and Treasurer Jenni Pellot; (3) re-affirming the call of the Rev. Dr. Michael Maurice Boyland as pastor per the terms in the budget; (4) calling of members-at-large to serve on the nominating committee for 2009. The three “At-Large” members were Betty Blizel, Joe DiMaggio, and Carroll Kinslow. The December 13 congregational meeting was for the purpose of electing new Deacons and Elders who would start serving in 2010. Session placed seven members on the inactive rolls. Members on the inactive rolls for more than two years can be officially removed them from the membership rolls. Session will endeavor to contact inactive members

PCUSA DENOMINATIONAL NEWS Presbytery and Synod and General Assembly are the higher levels of our church government. Presbytery covers the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area and meets six times a year. The Presbytery of San Francisco was founded in 1849. It was 160 years old in 2009.  78 congregations embracing more than 40 cultures and languages  28 additional specialized ministries  27,000 congregation members  300+ pastors and ministers  Session sent elder commissioners to all five San Francisco Presbytery meetings in 2009. There were three significant items of note arising in Presbytery this year. The first was the Structural Review Team. Elder Joan Fong chaired the Presbytery Structural Task Force which completed a three-year effort to reform and improve our presbytery. The task force recommended stronger communications and ties between the member churches and the denomination; as well as a clearer hierarchy of staff in the Presbytery. Implementation will be interesting to watch.

Page 8

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church The second item of note in Presbytery this year was a policy adoption of Graceful Separation. Should a church have schism with the denomination over a theological policy, and wish to secede from the denomination and move to another reformed denomination, then the church can take its lands and property with it. Previously, the Presbytery would keep the land and buildings on a church property while the people would have to leave and find new facilities. This has been a source of much tension in Sacramento Presbytery. The San Francisco Presbytery wishes to avoid such conflict, and will allow seceding churches to leave PCUSA with their land and facilities. The third item of note in Presbytery was whether or not Lisa Larges, an avowed homosexual, could be a candidate for ministry to be ordained as a pastor in the PCUSA. Current PCUSA policy as spelled out in the Book of Order and as has been argued over the past several General Assemblies, does not allow practicing homosexuals to be officers of the church. A contentious church lawsuit ensued over the issue mirroring the divide across the nation over the homosexual issue. The PCUSA judicial committee ruled she would have to be considered eligible to be a candidate without ruling on the larger issue of her homosexuality. This would be a precedent in the country if Larges is ordained as a pastor. The decision is being appealed to Synod. This will be a continuing issue to watch and pray for in 2010. Synod addresses the western region of the country and meets three times a year. Synod of the Pacific is governed by 52 Commissioners elected by the 11 Presbyteries within its boundaries covering northern California, Idaho, Oregon and Nevada. One of the benefits of synod is their investment and loan services. They provide interest checking to the church at 3.25% and 6 month certificates of deposit to churches at 3.75%. General Assembly (GA) is the Biennial convention of the national church government and meets once every two years. The GA consists of commissioners elected by presbyteries. Half of the commissioners will be ordained ministers. The other half will be elders. The GA reviews the work of synods, resolves controversies in the church, is responsible for matters of common concern for the whole church, and serves as a symbol of unity for the church which

Page 9

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church has 2.3 million members, more than 10,000 congregations and 14,000 ordained and active ministers. The last GA was in June 2008, the 218th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA), when they met in San Jose at the HP Pavilion ( The next GA is July 3-10, 2010 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Elder Fong also served on the Denominational Mission Development Resource Committee in charge of loans and grants. We are blessed at IPC to have so many caring and loving and praying people. God really has spread his grace on this church in the midst of all the financial turmoil of 2009. Worship attendance is up 10%. Our finances have not decreased as much as other churches. We have seen much activity in the youth arena which we praise God for. He has brought the Farmers Market to our midst for us to witness to. We look forward towards what God has in store for us in 2010. IPC is positioned in a very unique location and place in this time and it will be interesting as we continue down this amazing life journey God has given us. My prayer is “WHAT will GOD want you to do in 2010?“ Respectfully submitted in His Name, Ron Fong Clerk of Session, 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church

IPC is where friends and families From all ages and nations Find meaning, purpose and belonging In Jesus Christ on life’s journey

Board of Deacons
The Board of Deacons began the year 2009 with ten members, the same as in 2008. This was a reduction from fifteen members in 2007 due to a lack of people willing or able to serve. This reduction of Deacons required each Deacon to be responsible for more church members in their parish and also required that most have more than one committee responsibility. In January 2009, Judy Marsh found it necessary to take a leave of absence and was unable to return for the remainder of the year, leaving only nine Deacons to perform all the duties required of them. Consequently, some duties previously performed by Deacons have been eliminated. The Moderator has requested that the number of Deacons be increased to twelve. However, the Nominating Committee has been unable to fill these positions and the Board of Deacons will only have nine members again in 2010. The 2009 Officers were:
 Moderator – Darlene Neesham  Vice Moderator – Thea Pex  Secretary – Alexis Di Maggio  Treasurer – Deloris Anderson

The Committee Chairpersons were:
 Coffee/Medical Supplies – Dan Kingman  Communion Supplies – Darlene Neesham  Emergency Shelter– Brook Mantia  Flowers – Shirley Murray  Nominating Committee Rep – Lynnette Ariathurai  Nursery – Dawn Lunn  Prayer Chain – Thea Pex Page 11

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church Parishes: Members of the congregation and regular attendees are divided into parishes. Each Deacon is assigned a parish. The Deacon is to care for the needs of those in their parish, pray for them and help them in any way they can when called upon to do so. Prayer Chain: One of the most important services of the Deacons is the “Prayer Chain.” Any member of the church may call the church office, the Prayer Chain Chairperson, the Deacon Moderator, the Pastor or any Deacon to be put on the prayer chain. The prayer chain consists of the current deacons, a few retired deacons, and the elders on Session. In 2009, the Prayer Chain Chairperson found that using email to disseminate the majority of prayer requests was much more efficient. Telephone calls are still made to those who do not have access to the Internet. In 2009, the prayer chain carried 175 prayer requests to our Lord asking for His help in many varied situations. Deacons have arranged transportation, provided meals for those who are ill, made hospital visits and care home visits, as well as sending birthday, sympathy and anniversary cards. Deacons also notify members of their parish of special activities, such as the church picnic. Regular services provided by the Deacons are:  Serving coffee, tea, and juice after services each Sunday.  Provide the flower calendar and be responsible to see that flowers are provided in the sanctuary each Sunday. The

Page 12

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church Deacons also arrange for Easter Lilies and Christmas poinsettias as well as flowers for the ladies on Mother’s Day.  For the past two years we have served Strawberry Shortcake in the Social Hall following Worship Service, to honor our fathers on Father’s Day.  Prepare the elements and help serve Communion on the first Sunday of each month and for special communions approved by Session. Prepare Communion for the Pastor to take to shut-ins. Deacons also wash the serving trays and chalice after the service and all Deacons pick up empty Communion cups from the pews.  Responsible for receptions following funeral services when requested by the family. Provide receptions for special occasions such as Pastor Appreciation Day, Christmas Program, etc.  Host potlucks when requested by the Session.  A Deacon attends each monthly Session meeting to give a report from the Deacons and to bring a report back from Session to the next Deacons meeting.  Keep an inventory of medical supplies and loan to members as needed. We honored nine High School graduates with a devotional book. One Jr. High, one college graduate, and one person that passed the California Bar, were given congratulation cards. We honored Barbra Herrington, our Music Director with a cake when she resigned and moved to Vermont.
Page 13

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church On April 12, we helped Cleburne Stephens celebrate his 95th Birthday with a cake served in the Social Hall. During the year we were able to provide $750 to the Pastor for his use as discretionary funds. Also, $2999.56 was given to assist several families in our congregation with emergency funds. At year-end, we had an excess balance of $1000. We gave $300 of this money to the IPC WeFIL Club to help with the expense of their program, and we gave a total of $700 to four families in the congregation who were having financial needs. We were able to accomplish this due to the generosity of the Congregation. We are grateful for the willing help of the whole congregation, and we wish you all Hope, Faith, Peace, Joy and Love. Thank you all. Moderator Darlene Neesham 2009 Board of Deacons

IPC Youth and Children’s Ministry Report
How amazing it is to find so many opportunities given by God for His faithful servants to share the love of Christ with others! 2009 was filled with opportunities and blessings from God through the youth and children’s ministries at IPC. It was a busy year with special events and new ministry beginnings. Best of all, children and youth had the opportunity to experience spiritual development as they learned about what it means to put their faith in Christ. WeFIL Kids (Weaving Faith Into Life for Kids) WeFIL Kids began as a Kids Club in the Fall of 2008 and transformed into a full children’s faith outreach in January, 2009. WeFIL is an acronym standing for Weaving Faith Into Life. It has been exciting to witness the work of God in the lives of children through our WeFIL kids’ outreach. Attendance has grown from 5 children in the Fall of 2008 to up to 30 children one year later in the Fall of 2009. The basis for our ministry is the fellowship of believers found in Acts 2:42-47 and the Great Commission given by Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20. Every Tuesday evening, children gather around tables for dinner, learn a new mealtime grace, and engage in conversations with a caring adult about the happenings in their lives. Children are taught a new table manner each week and are encouraged to practice manners throughout the meal. Following dinner, children participate in small groups for songs, Bible lessons, crafts and other faith-centered activities. We have been given a great opportunity to share our faith and community with children through a faith centered, nurturing program at WeFIL Kids.
Page 20

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church Youth Group

In May, 2009, a Jr. Youth Group began meeting twice a month. Six youth in grades 6-8 attended youth group meetings throughout the summer. Meetings included games, special events and devotions. The Jr. Youth Group continued meeting in the Fall of 2009 and began attending Wyldlife, a Jr. High program hosted by Tri City Young Life at Centerville Presbyterian church. VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

In August, 2009, IPC hosted “The Boomerang Express” Vacation Bible School. An average of 42 children in preschool through 8th grade attended this event with an Australian theme. Each day was filled with games, crafts, Bible lessons, music, drama and Australian terms such as G’Day Mate! 15 High School youth and 12 adults volunteered throughout the week to make it a memorable time for children. It was obvious that children were truly learning about what it means to be a follower of Christ. YPAC CLUB The Youth Performing Arts (YPAC) Club began in September, 2009, as an opportunity for local children to learn about music and singing. The children presented a Christmas musical in December and were truly a blessing to all in attendance. SPECIAL EVENTS Special events were held throughout 2009. In April, an Easter Egg Hunt was held on Palm Sunday. The congregation enjoyed a time to interact with children and youth at the Ice Cream Social held in July.
Page 21

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church Children and youth enjoyed a time together to cool down during Water Day held in July. A special blast off with homemade lemon rockets and fun activities was held in September to kick off Fall ministries. Children and youth also had the opportunity to help raise funds for their programs through the pancake breakfast held in September and the Christmas Baking Bonanza held in December, 2009.

2010 will be a year of continued opportunities for ministry! Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19-20. As children and youth are coming to know Christ and put their faith in Him, we are expanding our ministries to include confirmation classes to begin this season of Lent, 2010. The Jr. Youth Group will be attending a winter camp hosted by Young Life in Woodleaf, CA on February 13-15. Children and youth will be participating in Sunday Worship services. The Youth Performing Arts Club will perform on Palm Sunday and will present a mini musical on Easter Sunday. We will host our second annual ice cream social and water day as well as continue our annual Easter Egg Hunt. As we host such programs, we will be able to go and bring children and youth to our church to grow disciples for Christ through our ministries.
Page 22

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church As more families visit our church, they will see that we are committed to children and youth in our ministries and outreach programs. God is working in our community to draw children and youth to Him as we remain faithful to His Word and as we demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ. There is a field ripe for the harvest right around our church! As we continue to pray and follow God’s great design, we can continue to reach out to youth and their families through continued ministries rooted and established in Christ. Thank you to everyone who donated time, treasures and talents to make church a positive experience for the children and youth who attend our ministries. Your dedication to youth and children is evident and God will continue to bless your faithfulness!

Missions Team
"Missions: the Heart of the Church" The good news of Jesus Christ continued to be proclaimed through our local area as well as across the seas through the efforts of the missionaries and organizations that that the congregation of the Irvington Presbyterian Church helped to support during the year of 2009. Even though we were under funded, your Mission Team trusted the Lord to provide the needed funds to complete our obligations and, indeed, that happened. The Lord provided and we were able to honor our commitments to those we help support. Our year started out planning for a seminar on Sikhism led by the Rev. Wilson Koppula held on February 7 in the Social Hall. Those in attendance found it to be a very stimulating and informative experience. March 14 a fund raiser crab feed was held to raise funds for the proposed Mission work week at Hope Unlimited in Brazil July 1 – 10, 2010. This included a raffle of ethnic food baskets and all together with raffle and ticket sales with over 80 people attending; we were able to raise $2100. This was a wonderful time of fellowship as we slowly ate our crab. Many thanks to the Mission Team and especially to Chairperson, Carole Kinslow and chief cook Darlene Neesham for making this such a success.

Page 24

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church On April 26 Mission Team hosted a luncheon for the congregation to hear a presentation from David and Carol Chow about their proposed work with Wycliffe Bible Translators.

The summer months saw us planning for an August 23 luncheon with Paul and Alice Ryon, missionaries to the Gujarati Hindu people from India who reside in Leicester, England and work under the auspices of Christar. Their delightful pictorial presentation encouraged us all.

The August Vacation Bible School afforded various Mission Team members the opportunity to give a short presentation to the children about the various missions we help support. Children were encouraged to bring an offering each day to be used for missions. A harvest theme tri-tip fund raiser dinner was held on October 17, including a raffle of 6 theme baskets prepared by various Mission Team members. This dinner, again was to raise funds to help with the cost of the trip to Brazil in July 2010. Two people from First Presbyterian Church of Hayward, who have been to the campus in Brazil, each gave us a 10 minute talk of their experience. The raffle drawing for the baskets brought forth much laughter and joy. This effort raised $1024. To add to the growing fund, the Chinese Church donated $1000. Many thanks to all who are helping in this effort.

Page 25

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church In our December Birthday Party for Jesus collection of gifts for the needy distributed by Tri-City Volunteers, we received 48 bags of gifts, which included more than 100 presents in all. Mission Team again wishes to thank the congregation for all your support, financially, in attendance at our special functions, with your prayers and encouragement. We cannot outgive the Lord as is evidenced and promised in Luke 6:38. “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” MISSION TEAM MEMBERS Mary Ellen McKowen, Chairperson Bonnie Nichols, Treasurer Carole Kinslow Virginia Stull Jenni Pellot Patti Boyland, Secretary Teresa Oliver Phyllis Parker Pastor Michael Boyland

Personnel Committee
The Personnel Committee is responsible for staff and assisting the committees with staff oversight and supervision. Personnel Committee consists of the chairperson for any committee/team which has paid personnel under their ministry. During 2009, there was one change in the staff at Irvington Presbyterian Church (IPC). In May, Jonathan Fadner was hired as our New Choir director replacing Barbara Herrington. God continues to bless our church with gifted and talented staff in our ministry! A new position, Facility Manager, Dan Kingman, was approved for 2009. This position will report to Building and Grounds and will be responsible for overseeing the use of our facilities, securing rental agreements, on-site presence when needed at non-church functions, and collecting all fees for facility use. This position relieves much of the work done by the Church Secretary and provides greater renter oversight. The Facilities Manager reports to the Finance elder. Paid staff at IPC include: Pastor, Michael Boyland; Children and Youth Director, Nancy Angulo; Music Director, Jonathan Fadner, Organist, Daniel Khuc; Office Manager, Frankie Cabral; Bookkeeper, Jeanette Ollison; Recorder, Kathy Jeffries; Nursery, Fauzia Kamal; Facility Manager Dan Kingman and Security, Justin Chaikin. Dick Hwang is Pastor of our Chinese ministry. Personnel reviews for all paid staff were completed in the spring of 2009. Truly IPC is blessed with wonderful staff whose ministry continues to serve our community and world with the love and grace of Jesus Christ. David Wegener, Chairman Personnel Committee

Stewardship Team
Your 2009 Stewardship Team included: Fred Conwell, Alexis DiMaggio, Angelina Wu, Bonnie Nichols, Teresa Oliver and Russell Pennelly with special help from Don Carson. In April 2009, Stewardship informed the congregation of the "One Great Hour of Sharing" campaign. Presbyterian programs of Disaster Assistance, Development of Peoples and the Hunger Program are equal beneficiaries of this special offering. Irvington Presbyterian Church members contributed $911 to this campaign. In July 2009, Stewardship made a presentation to the congregation covering topics intended to encourage more participation in Church sponsored outreach programs and a greater financial commitment from the congregation. Stewardship pointed out the usage of our facility, the outreach programs that we were supporting and the members directly involved. We also presented our shortages in both pledged and unpledged offerings needed to continue to support those programs. In November 2009, Stewardship launched a campaign to directly reach the congregation with our financial needs. The intent was to meet with the membership of IPC in small "in home" get-togethers. These meetings had a three fold purpose. One, was to encourage the membership to be more involved in the day-to-day workings of the Church. Members were invited to join one of the session committees. Two, we wanted to raise the percentage of the membership who pledged. And three, we wanted the congregation to be aware of how important the pledges were to the budget process. Session struggles year in and year out to balance God's faithfulness against fiscal responsibility.

Page 32

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church In recent history our budget has been running a deficit each year. Our "in home" small group meetings emphasized our financial plight and its effects on planning. Stewardship held 7 "in home" meetings. In the midst of these meetings, Pastor Randy Young gave a very impassioned sermon. If you heard it, you were moved. Although, Stewardship would like to take the credit, it was Pastor Michael's foresight to arrange for Randy to be with us at that important time. Stewardship talked directly to 65 members (46 families) and mailed 51 additional information packets. Response to date has been received from 38 families with pledges totaling $116,000 for the 2010 general fund and missions pledges of $18,860 for 2010. Thanks be to God.

These meetings could not have taken place without the help of many people. First there were deacons, elders and Pastor Michael who called the membership scheduling them to one of the meetings. Then there were the meeting host and hostesses. Behind the scenes, Bonnie & Teresa deserve special thanks for the graphic design and preparation of the Stewardship packets. Personally, I thank Don Carson for his participation at every single meeting. Don kept us accurate and on time while presenting the difficult financial data. In December 2009 Stewardship conducted the last special offering of the year. The Christmas Joy offering helps retired Church employees and Presbyterian racial-ethnic education programs in equal parts. Our congregation contributed $447 to this special offering.

Homework Club
The Homework Club is a ministry at Hirsch Elementary School, across the street from the church, which several members of IPC have been participating in for nearly 4 years. Every Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon from 2:35 to 3:45 p.m., three or four volunteers have been tutoring students who need extra help to succeed in school. We have heard from former students that they are now doing well with their schoolwork as a result. On January 25, 2010, The California Congress of Parents, Teachers and Students, Inc., bestowed upon the Irvington Presbyterian Church Homework Club Angels the distinction of the Golden Oak Service Award, the state PTA’s highest honor, in recognition of outstanding service to children and youth. Mrs. Casey, Hirsch’s Principal, says that the students test scores have improved. The volunteer tutors find the work rewarding as we see the light bulb turn on when the students gain understanding of something that was puzzling them. It’s wonderful to hear the students talk about how their grades have improved. Students who were failing in one or more subjects are proud to show us the great grade they received on a test or paper. This year the Homework Club has been especially helpful to the teachers at Hirsch who have had new responsibilities and fewer prep periods as a result of the state budget cuts. We now have up to 70 students from grades 1 through 6 attending the club. There are between 3 and 10 students from Irvington High School who help tutor and receive community service hours for their work. Thank you to the IPC tutors who have given many hours of their time to this ministry over the years: Nancy Angulo Patti, Boyland, Nancy Dickenson, Jeane Garrett, Margaret Howden, Carol Lynn, Shirley Murray, Jeanette Ollison, and Thea Pex. Kudos goes to the 2009 volunteers.
Page 35

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church Your hard work is greatly appreciated by the students, teachers, and the principal. You have shared God’s love in a wonderful way that will make a difference in the lives of these children and in our community. Joyfully serving Him, Jeanette Ollison, Homework Club Coordinator

Hirsch Kids Club
IPC began praying for a Bible club at Hirsch in 2006, the same year we started the Homework Club. Then we heard about Kids Clubs which were already well established in Santa Clara County. Kids Club is an after-school program designed to teach positive biblical life skills to children in public schools. Each Kids Club is run by several churches in the area working together. In 2008 a promotional Kids Club video was shown at Harbor Light Church. Mrs. Casey, Hirsch’s principal, “happened” to be there that day and said she wanted to have a Kids Club at her school! After a meeting with Harbor Light in November 2008, we agreed to partner together for the club at Hirsch. We started in February 2009 becoming the first Kids Club in Alameda County! Beginning in September, Nancy Angulo and Kristin Inman, from Harbor Light, collaborated to produce the curriculum for the club. Between 40 and 50 Hirsch students attend each Monday afternoon from 2:35- 4:00, many who don’t attend church but have a desire to learn about God. In December the students narrated and performed the Christmas story for their parents who were invited to attend. We all enjoyed a potluck together after the performance. Thank you to Jeane Garrett and Carole Kinslow for helping with the fall registration. Thank you to Carol Lynn, Jeanette Ollison, and Nancy Angulo for leading and teaching a group of children each week. Thanks be to God that the Bible is being taught, children are getting discipled, and prayers are being said in the public schools.

Finance Committee
The Finance Committee is responsible for ensuring funds received are properly counted, deposited, held and spent. The Finance Committee ensures bills are paid promptly after approval for payment by the appropriate Committee Chairperson(s). The Finance Committee monitors all funds on deposit with Bank of America and with Synod for the IPC ‘On Demand’ Savings Account and Certificates of Deposit. The Finance Committee is responsible for keeping Session and the Congregation informed of the church's financial situation and ensures that all committees present proposed budgets for review and approval by Session. In 2009, the Finance Committee consisted of Don Carson as Chairperson; Helen Jorgensen, Shirley Murray, Russ and Denise Pennelly, Ron Fong, and Gill Carson as volunteer Counters; Jeanette Ollison as Bookkeeper; and Kathy Jeffries as Recorder. The Chairperson monitors the functions of the Finance Committee and the IPC financial status and reports to Session and the Congregation. The Counters rotate on a weekly basis so that each week one Counter prepares and makes a bank deposit which includes all receipts for the week: general giving, special designated giving, facility rental receipts, and any other funds received by IPC. The Recorder keeps records of all income and specifically individual contributions, and sends statements to church members and other contributors for their financial records. The Bookkeeper issues checks for all approved bills and keeps financial records including payroll and tax information. Church records are kept in a secure database managed by a software program called 'Church Windows.' In 2009, the Finance Committee accomplished an upgrade, through a donation, of the computer used to manage the financial database. This change allowed us to upgrade to the latest version of Church Windows and keep our software current. A similar upgrade of the IPC office computer was also accomplished at the same time (with thanks to Jeff Jaycox for that computer donation). Some custom software was implemented to improve the accuracy and clarity of the IPC monthly financial report by enabling an automated transfer of data from Church
Page 37

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church Windows to the EXCEL spreadsheet used to present the data. Note this did not improve the financial situation, just its presentation! 2009 Results: In 2009, the IPC General Fund financial position continued a trend of deficit spending, resulting in a further drawdown of IPC's interest-bearing savings held in the Synod Certificates of Deposit and a Custodial Account. However, due to a late spurt in General Fund contributions in December (see graph below), general giving income finished slightly above the budgeted amount. Other anticipated income was somewhat below the budgeted value but expenses were also lower. These conditions led to an actual deficit for the year of $10,896 which is $2,820 less than the planned deficit for 2009.

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church 2010 Budget: Efforts continued all year to improve IPC's financial position through enhanced rental income. These efforts were not successful. However, work continues on an initiative to rent space on top of the bell tower (around the base of the steeple) along with some storage area to Clearwire, a start-up company whose business is provision of wireless internet services in Wi-Max format. If negotiations are successful, and if Clearwire proves economically viable, this leasing would provide a steady augmentation of IPC income for up to 30 years. The General Fund Budget for 2010 is presently based on the historical income for the last three years (not including the exceptional December, 2009, up-tick). Since the actual pledged amount for general giving is well less than the historical giving, the difference (about $50,000) represents Session's faith and belief that the historical trend (at least) will continue. A serious attempt was made to balance the 2010 budget, rather than continue the significant deficit spending of recent years. The resulting budget has a number of areas where economies were achieved through diligent search for more economical approaches to the operations expenses. It also has some difficult cuts, principally in personnel salaries. Session's plan is to track income carefully, work on the Clearwire lease, and review progress before mid-year. The 2010 budget details are as follows:

Tri City Free Breakfast Program
The Tri-City Free Breakfast Program (TCFBP) is a ministry of Irvington Presbyterian Church. The Tri-City Free Breakfast Program (TCFBP) continues to offer hot, nutritious breakfasts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning between the hours of 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. The program begins with food preparation at 5:30 a.m. culminating with clean-up typically by 9:30 a.m. and is staffed 100% by volunteers. Our guests include a significant percentage of seniors, families, working poor and homeless people. For the majority of the guests, this breakfast is often the only hot, nutritious meal consumed each day.

Boy Scout Troop 102
In 2009, Boy Scout Troop 102 started meeting at IPC on Monday nights. It is an active troop of about 20-30 young men ages 11-18, grades 5-12. The majority of the boys are home-schooled and mostly from Newark. The current Scoutmaster is Don Gordon. The church’s charter organization representative to the troop is Ron Fong. We look forward towards a long partnership with the boys scouts towards building up young men with character, citizenship and fitness in this centennial year of the founding of Boy Scouts of America

Building and Grounds Committee
In 2009, there was an unexpected major repair needed for the waterline to the social hall that exceeded the fund balance available in the building renewal fund. Funds for the repair shortfall came from the church general fund reserves and are reflected in the 2010 budget. The major items in 2009 besides the repair of the waterline were  Reduce the operating budget over 10%  Hiring a new janitorial service to improve the quality of service and reduce the expenses by $6600 reducing expenses by 24%.  Eliminate hidden fees charged by the phone company by $1,040 saving 30%, thanks to eagle eyed Don Carson  Took bids to try to lower landscaping expenses  Started work with PG&E on an energy audit to reduce energy costs and improve our carbon footprint, thanks to Ron Fong, who will be seeking outside grant and rebate funding.  Began exploring possible Eagle Scout projects on campus with the new Boy Scout Troop 102 now meeting at the church A facility manager, Dan Kingman, was hired to schedule the rental of our facilities, oversee events as needed, ensure that rents were received on a timely basis, and inspect the facility on a regular basis for open doors, misuse of the facility, and notify the B&G team of any problems in need of our attention. This position was very helpful since we have had some serious renter issues in the past, and in 2009 the problems have been greatly diminished. Normal maintenance is ongoing, however some projects needing attention are on hold until weather permits, i.e. painting exterior where needed, dry rot in window casements, etc. Our heartfelt thanks go out to those who help keep the campus presentable without being asked and without recognition. WE are TRULY BLESSED Yours in Christ B&G Committee Jim Madsen, Chair

Congregational Life Team
IPC’s Congregational Life Team is centered on fellowship, both with people we’ve known for a long time, but especially by welcoming visitors and new members. We do this in a variety of ways this past year:      Ministry Fair in October Summer Picnic in August with jump house and water play Easter Egg Hunt 90th Birthday Celebration Marie Mullen Visitation

VISITATION - AN ARM OF EVANGELISM - Most Tuesday nights during 2009 faithful teams of 2 ventured out to visit newcomers to the church. These are very interesting friendly visits that take place often resulting in return visits to our Worship services. There are evenings when we cannot connect with anyone at home, but that does not discourage us, we keep on trying and the Lord continues to bless our efforts. We are grateful for the faithful teams who consist of Darlene Neesham, Carole Lynn, Lynnette Ariathurai, Mary Lee Starkel, Michael Boyland and Mary Ellen McKowen. Other informal activities include the IPC Women's Out to Lunch monthly and the IPC Women's Bible Study Group weekly. Jenni Pellot Congregational Life Chair

Chinese Ministry
We thank God for His mercy and grace. Our Sunday morning Chinese language service serves an average of 18 people, serving many people who come from Taiwan and Mainland China who thirst for the Lord’s Word. Pray for two people who are currently wrestling with being baptized in Christ. On Thursday nights we have ping-pong ministry, led by the Rev. Dick Hwang. It is rare to hear such loud laughs and screams from Chinese males. A terrific BBQ was well received and attended in 2009. In the 2nd and 4th week of the month, we have Bible study and prayer in Sequoia Manor, the senior housing complex a block from the IPC campus. The mother of a missionary to the Muslims visited us and gave us many testimonies. She worked with her son, Rev Chi and his family, in the Southern part of Thailand for twelve years. Our small group is growing both spiritually and numerically. We pass out invitations and gospel tracts every Thursday morning in the Fremont Senior Center. Glory to God! We worship Him. In Christ Elder Amy L. Wu

Christian Equipping Team
The Christian Equipping Team is responsible for assisting with planning and carrying out the educational programs of the church. The Team is responsible for Children’s Church and ministry, Adult Education and Vacation Bible School. This report summarizes our ministry into  Outreach Programs  Training Programs  Christian Education Programs

OUTREACH PROGRAMS Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Was a huge success in August that was coordinated by Nancy Angulo The theme that Nancy chose was “Boomerang Express: an Australian Theme.” There was an average of 42 kids from the ages of K-8th grade who attended the program. We started the 5-day school at 8:00a.m. and lasted until 12:05 p.m. There was an opening day on Monday, with the following sessions: Bible Study, Games, Music, and Crafts. We offered snacks for each day, provided nursery care for the volunteers with children. Lynette Ariathurai and Nancy made the props to complement the theme. Thanks be to God and Christ for the volunteers who made VBS a success: Jeanette Ollison, Frankie Cabral, Darlene Neesham, Carol Kinslow, Betty Blizel, Pastor Boyland, Natalie and Shivani Ariathurai. We held a Vacation Bible School Appreciation BBQ for the children and their parents on the last day.

WEFIL (Weaving Faith into Life)
Has been led by Nancy Angulo on Tuesday nights with a break during the summer and starting in the fall. With attendance starting with 12 kids in January to summer, we now are averaging 30 kids. The group had split the older children (4-6 kids in grades 6 and 7) into a Jr. High Youth group. WEFIL starts with dinner for the children and volunteer leaders. They then break up into groups to do crafts, activities and singing with a theme that is
Page 52

Annual Report 2009 Irvington Presbyterian Church based on bibles stories. On some evenings there are movie nights held in the social hall. The group averages around 20-25 kids a night. WEFIL has been special in that we have reached children who now have Christ and God involved in their lives. The CE team thanks the volunteers for their dedication to make WEFIL possible with their help in cooking the dinners, being a group leader for the kids or in providing transportation. They are: Dave Wegener, Lynette Ariathurai, Bonnie Burger, Shirley Vick, Dawn Lunn, Nick McClure, Carol Lynn and Joan Fong. We also want to thank the Mission San Jose student volunteers who help out also. WEFIL had a trip to Chucky Cheese with 15 kids before the summer break and had made two trips to Windsor Skilled Nursing home during Christmas to pass out IPC donated gifts to 120 residents.

Jr. High Youth Group
Was started in the end of May and picked up again in September. It consists of 5-6 kids from the WEFIL group. They alternate the Thursday 7:00-8:30 meetings at IPC church and at Centerville Presbyterian Wild Life meetings with other Jr. High kids. They participate in sports and interactive games and have Bible discussions. Snacks are provided and Nancy Angulo transports the children. There were some movie and bowling night outings and a miniature golf event.

Kids Club
Kids Club is an afternoon program held at Hirsch Elementary School. It is held every Monday at 2:35p.m. to 4:00p.m. IPC is a major partner in this ministry as a first in Alameda County public schools. Several volunteers give their time to support the program. This program teaches about the Bible and averages about 40-45 kids. They do crafts, games and snacks are provided. Volunteers from IPC include Nancy Angulo, Carol Lynn and Jeanette Ollison. Five to six volunteers from Harbor Light and one volunteer from Abundant Life Christian Fellowship also help in the club. This program started with Tim Inman and is now managed by Kristin Inman. This program is worth mentioning

YPAC (Youth Performing Arts Club)
Nancy Angulo started a musical club with some of the WEFIL and Jr. High kids in September. It is open to grades K-High school. It is lead by Nancy, Kathy Flenniken and Jonathan Fadner. There are 12-14 kids who performed during the Christmas service and during special occasions during regular Sunday services.

HomeWork Club After School Tutoring at Hirsh School continues to be a success. Jeanette Ollison, Carol Lynn, Jeanne Garrett, Thea Pex, Shirley Murray and students from Irvington High School tutor around 25-30 kids ranging from 2nd to 6th grade. The Club has reached 60 kids in the month of October. We thank the Lord for all those who have given their time and food donations for the club.

English as a Second Language
ESL classes have been offered and taught by Carol Lynn from January to April. There were around 15-17 students who were primarily from the local Chinese community. Carol had the help of 3 San Jose High school Mandarin-speaking students to help as interpreters for the students. Many of the ESL students stay and join in worship with the Chinese Ministry that is overseen by Amy Wu.

Sunday School
Children’s Sunday School was coordinated by Carol Lynn. Faithful teachers for the age included: Carol Lynn, David Wegener, Jeanette Ollison, Joan Fong, Lynnette Ariathurai and Ron Fong. Attendance was sporadic with 2-8 children in the K-8th grades. In September we initiated a change in the program were all the children of all meet in the McKowen room to watch a DVD and talk about the Bible lesson for the day. The kids then split into specific age groups to separate classrooms and do game and crafts based on the day’s Bible lesson.

The harvest is white and ripe, but the workers are few. We could use many more volunteers in all the CE activities, especially in children and youth ministries and high school ministries.
