COORINATING BOARD MINUTES
The meeting was called to order by Pastor Brook McBride,
This was followed by a heartfelt prayer to open the meeting by Pastor Brook.
The next order of business was to introduce the “new chair“ of the Coordinating Board: Debbie Badge. Debbie gave a brief history of her service previous to Bear Creek. Debbie comes to us from Arizona, where she served on the SPR and the Finance team of her United Methodist Church down there. She comes to us with a ton of experience and is super organized! Debbie is well qualified. A motion to approve was made and unanimously approved. The next meeting will be run by her. The preliminary dates are:
Saturday, October 9
Saturday, November 13
Saturday, December 11
All meetings will be held in person at 9:00 a.m. in the sanctuary. We will observe the appropriate social distancing and wearing of masks. Zoom will be available for anyone who can't join us in person
Another motion to allow Jung to purchase and select a new Sound Board for use in the sanctuary (currently using one that belongs to Pastor Brook). The funds would come from the Foundation (Endowment). Randy and Worship to recommend the use thereof.
Chuck will produce a video (ZOOM) to allow chairs to see what king of money there is available to spend. The timeline for this is expected to be October 10th.
A new nursery hire has been made following the recommendation of the Staff/Parish Relations. A new Piano player has also been hired to play for the choirs.
Ellen Boyer provided a financial report to all present.
A discussion was held regarding the Boy Scouts agreement’s with BCUMC and the sponsoring institutions. A consensus was that we will see what the UMC conference has to say and act accordingly. Action by the trustees.
Camp Unity Eastside will move to BCUMC Oct. 21st. Meals for the move dates are needed.
The meeting was concluded with a sharing of the chairs/etc.
