April Business Meeting

Please review the following for our April 24th meeting..

RECOMMENDATIONS FROM TRANSITION TEAM

The Transition Team has wrapped up its primary tasks and makes these recommendations to the congregation.

1. We move that the congregation appoint a Pastor Search Team. (According to the By-Laws, the deacon body is responsible for this action. We suggest that the congregation be given opportunity to make suggestions for the deacons’ consideration and that these recommendations be in writing.)
2. We move that for a future direction of our congregation, we commit to (a) focused and intentional ministries related to our larger neighborhoods and (b) additional congregational fellowships (similar to the Karen and Hispanic groups). The Mission Team and Properties Team shall determine fee structures for these congregational fellowships being provided space and place. The target date for these fees shall be determined and in place by July 1. This is the way other congregations deal with utilities and space. If approved, financial and property guidelines will be shared immediately with the Karen and Hispanic congregations so as to provide advance notice.
3. We move that the Missions Team be empowered to work with the Church trustees and others that the Church Coordinating Council may recommend in order to establish a non-profit 501(c)(3) before the end of 2016. This non-profit is not intended to be the congregation nor is it to have authority over the congregation or its properties by this action. Its purpose is to seek outside funding for community efforts from individuals and organizations who would not otherwise give to a specific church. The non-profit will be given an appropriate name (i.e., “International Learning Center”) that does not identify it with the congregation.

EXPLANATIONS AND OBSERVATIONS:
1. The Transition Team asks the Church to vote on this future direction and focus of the congregation in order to clarify for the Pastor Search Committee as well as potential pastor candidates the skill set and interest needed in a new pastor. We are not suggesting that the new pastor be “an expert” in community transformation and missions but we would expect a commitment to this task.
2. In terms of community transformation and development work, the Transition Team recognizes that we are already doing some of this type of work through our ESL/GED programs, relationships Luella Merrett Elementary. We would look to consider various community training opportunities such as music, sports, Texas A&M Extension Service classes on “Healthy Food, Healthy Families;” First Command Educational Foundation six one-hour training sessions on basic banking, budgeting, investing, credit, home purchase, insurance, etc.; hands-on classes in automobile maintenance; Financial Peace University; Grief-Care; Divorce-Care; Back-to-School Health Fair. We will work with the community to find additional partners who have abilities and assets to work with us in the recognition that we ourselves have limited energy and personnel and can utilize additional help from our community. We feel that by sponsoring these types of transformational ministries, we (a) position our congregation as a community leader and (b) bring people to our location regularly as a point of contact and influence.
3. The Transition Team will soon be encouraging the congregation to consider a name change that reflects our role in the community. We want the congregation to be involved in helping frame this refocus for ourselves. (For instance, the name “The Fellowship at Chisholm Trail”–as a regional concept—is one name that has been mentioned.) We will be asking the congregation to have a summer Sunday celebration to celebrate our past, praise God for it, and move in an exciting way into our new future with a new vision and in anticipation of a new pastor.

Meeting! – This one NEEDS YOU!

Sunday April 17 is an important day for our church. Sunday morning you should find a copy of the proposal from your Transition Team. Be sure to pick one up and take it home with you to read. This will be the basis for our discussion together on Sunday evening. Bring it back with you as you come on Sunday evening. You will have time to share and let others know how you see this working. You will have time to give your thoughts, concerns and encouragements. Agape has much to praise God for and thanksgiving to God is always a good starting place. God is faithful and we have found it so in our lives and our church. Please Plan To Attend!
