TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH
REGULAR CHURCH COUNCIL MEETING – Sept. 13, 2018
Present: Pastor Megan Preston, Greg Jans, Dennis Brown, Mardelle Crist, Richard Larson, Gabby Swisher, Jeff Niedenthal, Randa Larsen, Sonia Liedman, and Sharon Smith.
Greg called the meeting to order at 7:07.
Devotions: Randa Larsen shared devotions with us, referring to Mark 4:35-41, the story about Jesus calming the storm when the boat he and the disciples were in was about to swamp. The devotional reminded us to trust Jesus to calm our storms, too.
Approval of Agenda: Mardelle moved to approve the agenda, seconded by Jeff. Motion passed.
4. New Business
Church Gutters – Richard reported that the gutters along the church addition are full
of vegetation and muck, and that the downspouts are plugged. Greg thought they
could be cleared with a big air compressor, although it would be extremely dirty
work. Gutter guards would be very costly to have done, but maybe we could do it ourselves. Greg said he’d check with 201 Building Supply.
Executive Session – no meeting.
Adjournment and Lord’s Prayer – Greg adjourned the meeting at 8:12, and we closed with the Lord’s Prayer.
Sharon Smith, Secretary
Next meeting is October 11, 2018
October Council Assistant: Richard Larson
