14 September 1977

Clerk John Hays opened the meeting by asking everyone to sing “Trust and Obey” with Vernon Weedman leading and Jeanne Weedman accompanying on the piano. John read Colossians 3:12–15 and 4:5–6 for a devotional. Then he reminded us that we need to be loving, forgiving, and telling others the good news. A time of prayer followed.

Earl Perisho gave a report.

Correspondence included a resignation from Almeda Hays from the Stewardship Committee and as a trustee.

The Education Committee reported that Children’s Church will be directed by Ruth Epperson. Junior Friends Youth will be directed by LaVern Muhr. An unused $70 scholarship is left at George Fox College, so it was approved to be applied to Denise Beebe.

Roy Curts, stewardship chair, reported that he appreciates our good financial picture. He thanked Harold Larson for painting around our church and mentioned our workday a week from the coming Saturday (9-24-77). Roy said anyone could give toward scholarships since this is not a budgeted item.

Vernon Weedman reported that they had an Outreach Committe meeting last night. Vernon said the committee is planning a missions outreach conference the last part of January or the first part of February.

John Hays closed with prayer.
