More News From Nick Than You Can Shake A Moderately Size Stick At

Bishop’s Committee News

The Bishop’s Committee met Sunday, April 15 and discussed the need to firm up our concept of our strategic plan, so that we can ensure that this is reflected in our identity designs, such as letterhead, brochures, etc. Bob D. will organize the information shared in the CAT survey and will present the conclusions to the congregation, along with the explanation that this will be a living, changing process.

There was also discussion of what kind of information we need to pull together to have available at the St. Nicholas table that we will host at Little Boots Rodeo.

Bob K. reported that we are currently well within the anticipated range of income and expenses. Expenses continue to exceed income, but the figures are within a few hundred dollars at this point.
