UPDATE FROM THE SPECIAL TASK COMMITTEE

The Special Task Committee met at the beginning of August to review our suggestions for amendments to the Constitution and By-Laws.  We completed that task, and Jenny volunteered to produce a revised document for consideration at the September board meeting.  Using a list that Paula had compiled, Pam and Beverly have created a form to record attendance and then enter it into our church data management software.  Our plans are to use these tools to contact members who have not attended for some time and to monitor attending members who stopped attending church due to illness and other concerns.  Under this proposal, a membership care committee will be formed to attend to these duties.  We also studied the building use policy and decided to recommend continuing use of the existing policy and form.  The committee has met several times this year and will meet one more time before the September board meeting to prepare our presentation and motions to the board for consideration.  I want to thank Brother Lee Cox, Jenny Brown, Barbara Sharp, Paula Jackson, Pam Proffitt and Beverly Bowman for their hard work.

Joe Jones, Chair
