Another discussion was over our bank loan for our roof replacement. The men determined they really prefer to get that loan paid off and stop making the monthly payments. It was determined we will pay it off completely over the next four months and be free of that debt. The men just didn’t see any need to be paying the interest on that loan if we could afford to just pay it off. But, at the same time, they don’t want to take a chance at putting us into a financial problem either. But, after looking at it all, it was pretty obvious we will have plenty of funds to clear this debt over the next four months and still have enough set back to cover us in case we were to have an emergency of some kind.
Another item was discussed but will be a part of our announcements for this morning. More information will be given on this later.
Please don’t forget our upcoming VBS on Saturday, July 14th from 12:00 –3:00. We will need plenty of help in providing sandwiches and drinks at noon and then cookies and snacks about 1:30 or so. I’m sure that brother Hatfield and those he will bring with him will do a really great job with their teaching. We will also be responsible for covering the cost of all the materials used also.
Brethren, I’m really proud of this congregation. It is really neat to sit in on the men’s meetings and listen to the men discuss the work of the church. They all tend to speak up, offer differing perspectives and views concerning whatever is being discussed. But, they also listen to each other and then come together on a final decision on whatever it is they are talking about. They may differ on their personal view or perspective but, they are unified when they make a final decision. It is a great demonstration of the “UNITY” that is to exist in the church. I thank God for the great example these men set in the way they work together!
Until next week, I love you all,
