Don’t forget about our Annual Congregational Meeting this Sunday, right after church. Thanks in advance to the Ciccones for the bagels. At our annual meeting, you’ll hear all about the ministries at OSA, updates about our building, our Stewardship Campaign and our Capital Campaign, committee reports, and other things. We will elect new council members, and generally engage in the kind of orderly, transparent, self-governing behavior that characterizes the church.
I’d like to remind you that our Capital Campaign is different than our Stewardship Campaign. Our Stewardship Campaign is our yearly effort to organize our finances and commit some of them to God—it’s ordinary, in the good sense of that word. Our Capital Campaign is extraordinary—it is above and beyond the regular. We need to fix some things in our building, and we can’t do it on our regular budget.
Members of the Stewardship Committee and I are trying to meet with every household individually to explain the capital campaign, to answer questions, and ask you to make a pledge. We know every family and every person is has their own situation, and so we are trying to build a path to a project that will cost over $100,000.
At Sunday's annual meeting, there will be a sign-up sheet for individual meetings about the capital campaign. If you haven’t had a visit from us, please sign up. And please enjoy our annual meeting.
