New Community E Note 5 30 2024

                Church Conference Set.  A Church Conference has been set for June 16, 2024 immediately following our Sunday morning worship service. The only item on the agenda is the approval of the Pastor’s Compensation Package approved and recommended by your Resource Committee. The package has been agreed to by the District Superintendent and the new pastor. The package includes: Salary $50,923; Housing and Utilities $28,000; Health Insurance $10,764; Pension $12,486 and Reimbursable Expenses of $4000. The total package is $106,163. These are very close to the figures the Resource Committee was using in planning this year’s budget.


                Our Digital Whiz –I abbreviated the title—Stephanie Powell has been accepted to Law School and starts in August. Needless to say, working full time  while attending law school will keep her very busy and she will be unable to continue to be part of our staff. We are very appreciative of her work. At the present time we do not anticipate filling the position.


                We have had an unusual amount of bees on the street side of the sanctuary lately. A beekeeper came out a couple of weeks ago and put a hole in the wall to remove and relocate the bees. He suggested leaving the hole open for a couple of weeks so the “robber bees” would come clean out the rest of the honey. The hive was quite impressive. I have attached a picture of the hive at the end of the email.


                Julianne Starner has resigned from the bookkeeping position. We appreciate her help these last several months and look forward to her continuing presence in our church activities and the thrift store.


                The changes in the Community Meal seem to be working well—and it is certainly easier to be finished up and cleaned up in the afternoon rather than early evening. Many of our guests are enjoying their meals here. Others are taking it “to go” and a few are still being delivered. Last week we had meatball sandwiches and potato salad. This week the Oakhurst LDS Church fixed chicken salad sandwiches, chips and cookies. Next week we are planning on having raviolis with green beans and a salad. Saturday’s cheeseburgers and chips continue to be well received.


                We are excited by the progress being made on the apartments going in next to the church. I have attached a flyer to  this email that I think will give you more information on the project. At the present time they are thinking they will be ready to move folks in around December.


                As always, thanks for all you do.

                Pastor Jim
