Bill will send out a draft of the newsletter and requested that each member check dates/times of events.  If there are any changes, please let him know.

Pastor’s Report:  Elaine reported that plans for Easter are set.

Old Business:  The snow cancellation procedure will be as follows:  Roger Simmons, Marlin Simmons, & John Hoover will make the decision of whether to cancel services or not.  Roger will call Elaine, Evy Kaye (for prayer chain notification), and Tess – who will notify WHSV.

New Business:  A discussion was held about non-members being on Focus Teams and their voting rights.  Non-members can be on Focus Teams but do not have voting rights.  Non-members can become members of Beaver Creek by re-affirmation of faith which would give them voting rights as members.  This issue will be discussed further for the future.

Renewal/Revival:  Discussed whether to have services this fall.  This matter will be discussed further as to which team is responsible for planning – Worship team or Leadership Team.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:59 p.m.

Darlene LaPrade – Church Clerk
