Bishop’s Committee Meeting 10/6/13 Johnnette Shane, Kevin Minch, Sally West, Julie Seidler, Krista Baker Meeting called

to order 12:15 p.m. Prayer There was not a quorum at first so we could not approve the minutes or take any action items. Vicar’s report Canterbury Club has started and a handful (four or so) people have been coming every other. Bishop’s Warden’s report Seven people attended Maria’s house event as part of the pledge drive and the event seems to have been successful. Maria and Kevin went to St. Louis yesterday for the annual communications conference. They learned more about the Table project, which allows for online groups (e.g. a digital adult formation group). Diocesan website has just gone through a major update. Each church has its own page. Junior warden’s report Fire inspection was conducted and fire extinguishers have been either updated or replaced so that we are up to code for our insurance and city regulations. The third pew from the front on the right is very squeaky and loose. Julie will look into fixing it. Treasurer’s report Plate has exceeded our expectations, so we are not as far behind in the budget as we had expected. See attached reports. Old business Children’s formation: Kerrin Smith and LaDonna Taylor have volunteered to help with Sunday School, which is just enough for us to start up again. We will have a meeting in the next week.
