SALT CHURCH – OUTREACH TEAM MEETING MINUTES

NOVEMBER 2, 2022

PRESENT:  Sheila Parker, Carrie Anthony, Veronica Brown, Megan Corey, Pastor Al 

Meeting began with Pastor Al giving update and explanation of church governing council and their role in the church.  Discussed outreach team responsibilities and team also expressed concern with only a few members at this time and need to add to team to enable further outreach and meet team responsibilities. 

 

OLD BUSINESS:  First Friday Christmas in Corry event decided to be cancelled as there are not enough members to assist and Veronica and Sheila unable to organize at this time. 

Megan reported she reached out to Chris G. of the Thyme group inquiring if any of the thyme group members would be interested in hosting the ladies Christmas party this year.  She provided Megan with a few ladies who may be interested.  Melissa Jones, Megan Freeland, and Ashley Kowalski.  Megan will reach out to these ladies to see if there is some interest. 

NEW BUSINESS:

Megan received update from Chris G that the sunshine group has dissolved.

This team is seeking clarification of Thyme group being under this team.  At this time responsibility of Thyme group will remain under the outreach team and will work on improving communication with its members, as the thyme group also assists with some of the outreach responsibilities and the outreach team is responsible for their budget.  Will try to coordinate outreach blessings, meals, baskets and events with them. 

Chris Gernovich and Patty Martin are co-leaders of the Thyme Group.  Chris will provide monthly updates to this team prior to each meeting, of events and business the thyme group has participated in and/or provided to outreach.

This team continues in prayer seeking God’s direction for the upcoming year.

SALT PANTRY:  served 1 family this month

LOVE BLESSINGS:  no updates

THYME GROUP:  Flowers were sent to Patty Martin on the death of her brother.

Meals Ministry:  2 days of meals were provided
