BoSL News
The BoSL last met on Wednesday, May 5, 2022 and is thankful to share the following:

Personnel and Programs

· As announced separately, PoP has extended a call to Beth Agner for the position of Minister to Children, Youth, and Families. We give thanks and praise to God for this! Please continue to pray for Beth, her family, and her current congregation as they discern God's will for their lives.

· The BoSL thanks the diligent and sustained efforts of the Search Committee to discern and work through this process. Members of the Search Committee included: Karen McLean (chair), Aivars Baumanis, Kris Salmi, Brian Corman, Chris Martin, and Pastor Hayes. We pray that your continued service in this endeavour will not be necessary.

· The BoSL is extremely thankful for the efforts by dedicated staff and lay leaders in the areas of Family Ministry and Education over the past year. In particular, thank you to Arla Albers and Katie Baynard! Your commitment in helping to grow the faith of PoP’s youth is a powerful witness for Christ!

· Recently, a new Church Staff Personnel Handbook was reviewed and approved. The BoSL sincerely appreciates the dedication of PoP’s staff and the lay leadership by PoP’s Personnel Committee in support thereof. Together, we are working for Christ.

Financial

· Thank you for your continued support of PoP’s efforts to carry out Christ’s commission of discipleship. Although the year-to-date contributions are under budget, they are seasonally on par. The BoSL discussed stewardship policies and efforts in this regard.

· The BoSL and PoP’s Financial Leaders are preparing for the Voters Meeting on June 12, 2022 with Budget approval as the principal agenda item

April 2022 Finance Report
THANK YOU! Your giving for April was $19,000 over expense. This brought the year-to-date deficit to $15,932. Your faithful giving allows us to carry on a multitude of ministries such as livestream worship and the Pop Kingdom for kids. Please consider what you might be able to do to help finish off the deficit. Blessings, Brad
