Glenn also shared several prayer concerns.
Golden Brunk was given an opportunity to address the Leadership Team. Golden feels that the church building has several needs to gain better accessibility, address some safety concerns, and bring the building up to code. The needs that were mentioned are a better drainage system, sidewalks around the church, a front door that swings outward, and more restrooms. Due to the fact that a member of the Facilities Team was not present, the Leadership Team will discuss this matter at next month’s meeting.

Evy Kaye led the group in a prayer.
