In March, the board covered a lot of ground and had some great discussions. We talked quite a lot about developing a strategy for growing our church and for reaching out to others in the community who might be looking for a church like ours but haven't heard of us or don't understand what we are all about. We're going to have some meetings in the next couple of months about this.
We also talked quite a bit about the building and how we should move forward in making it a rentable space. Our auditorium in the lower level is a nice space for banquets and meetings, but it needs a paint job, some updated lighting, and renovations of the washrooms. Upstairs, we've made the decision to remove the pews and replace them with chairs, but we need to sort out the flooring before we go forward. There was a lot of energy around the building projects, and a lot of opinions about priorities!
We also discussed contracts and intellectual property issues.
We had an interested guest this month who is considering taking on a board position, which is very exciting! We still have several vacancies, so if you're interested, please join us on the first Tuesday of any month to check out what the board meetings are all about.
