December Leadership Team Meeting
End of January to-do list
Three representatives meet at BECU to open account
Darrell, Hillary, and Cole will coordinate
Obtain EIN number
Darrell will begin process
Eleta will handle entering our information in the template.
It looks like the grant will not allow us to use tithes for the match, but we are in pretty good shape for raising the funds anyway.
Will have bookkeeping software by January
Stewardship Team report
Due largely to grant exclusions, we will not be asking the conference or local churches for money. Instead, we will write a letter announcing the grant and prepping them for a future ask.
We will make a move towards being a 100% tithing congregation.
Darrell, Ruth, Kristine, and Cole will meet with a group of members each to establish pledge amounts.
Everett will handle everything, but a count of those coming from Liberation would be helpful
Cole will handle picking up food from Safeway.
Eleta and Trish will arrive at 6:30 to setup
Instead of a service, ten representatives from Liberation Kadima, and Madrona Grace will meet to talk about race.
7 Last Words of Christ
Topic: White Supremacy
Several speakers have already been asked.
January All Church Meeting
It was proposed that we develop and distribute a job description for the treasurer so members are able to spend some time in discernment ahead of the meeting
It was brought up that Tom has agreed to take this position, but was worried about asking for the offering. It was agreed that the offertory can be handled by someone else.
We will determine event stewards for each event.
A flier will be passed out ahead of the meeting so members have time to think about what they would like to be responsible for.
