Property Report – Submitted by charles suhr Next meeting on 1/29/19. I will not be at the council meeting on 1/14/19, as I will be on vacation in Singapore. Property Committee did not meet in December. As for the building improvements team, our designing/contractor partner is working through what improvements are feasible given the budget we provided ($2,000,000) for what we set out as phase 1 improvements. We were to meet on 1/9/19, but cost information from our HVAC & sprinkler people was not yet available, so I cancelled the meeting. I am anticipating that we will have a full picture in early February of what improvements are within our budget.

Worship Team Facilitator Report – Submitted by Jane Killian Next meeting on February 2019. In addition to our November meeting minutes, thank you to all who made it possible to purchase and place armchairs in Fellowship Hall. Erich Sprowls put in many hours as soon as they arrived to assemble the eighteen chairs in time for worship on December 8 and 9. I was able to explain to many people why the chairs were necessary, and my quick conversations on Sunday proved the need for them. The arms and seat height make standing up much easier for users with knee and leg problems.
