Bill Wood reminded the group that each Focus Team should prepare their year-end reports which are due next month.

The group discussed the recent Beaver Creek Cares Weekend. The feedback was all positive and there seems to be interest in repeating the event in 2017.

The group discussed the opportunity for a Sunday School class or group to have a luncheon following the worship service on January 1. This would be a great opportunity to fellowship together on New Year’s Day.

Bill Wood handed out copies of the final budget for 2017. The budget for 2017 was reduced $6,106.12 from the previous year. Charles reported that 23 cards were turned in on Stewardship Sunday with pledges totaling $69,736.00. In comparison, the past three year’s pledges are as follows: 2016 – 26 cards with pledges totaling $84,072, 2015 – 34 cards pledging $98,072, and in 2014 – 38 cards pledging $108,920. As in previous years, more commitment cards may trickle in over the next few weeks.

The LT gave a few possible nominations to fill the vacancy on the Gifts & Calling Team. Bill will follow up with the list of prospects.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:55 pm.

The next Leadership Team meeting is December 15, 2017 at 7:00 pm.

Respectfully Submitted,

Dana Suter, Church Clerk
