Council Update February 2017

Four members of the council volunteered to meet with four members from English Lutheran Church of Bateman to work on a Covenant Partnership Agreement for sharing a pastor between the two churches. Members from the St. James Trinity Council (listed above) along with Pastor Tom Bryan have been meeting weekly for the past month and are very close to completing the final agreement. Draft versions of the final agreement will be available for review on Sunday, February 26th and Sunday,  March 5th. Review sessions will be held after services each Sunday at coffee to discuss this agreement. A special thanks to these folks for all their hard work.
