We had our congregational meeting yesterday. The simple agenda was: short preschool update, budget presentation, nominations. Here are the core charts shared. Just paging through them doesn’t give you the actual talk. I try and make slides that are support and hence they don’t “walk” quite as easy. If I’m just reading charts I’m not respecting your intelligence. But, these are the underlying data that the council and elders have been working with.
The progression of the charts is:
– agenda & Church vision
– statistical picture of congregation
– How that vision becomes reality, or How we spend your tithes in mission
– Budget, or what we want to spend next year
– Pastor’s words on what the budget means and the state of the congregation
