Highlights from the Board:

At the Board meeting on April 18th, the Board voted to host the ‘Land of Lakes Choir’ on June 14th. This concert choir consists of 28 boys from the Minneapolis area, and more details will be forthcoming. More information about the choir can be found at: http://lolcb.org/

The Board voted to extend the contract for Teri Lynn Skakum, our Child and Family Coordinator, and we look forward to our first ‘Messy Church’ of many on April 29th. We heard from The Bell Tower Cafe about a project to fill drawstring bags with hygiene items to distribute to our guests from Winnipeg Harvest, and we’re looking forward to assisting with this project as plans emerge — Carol.

News from the Board

The Board of Westminster met on March 21st, and opened with a brief reflection on Sherri’s sermon title ‘holy conversation.’ In her remarks, Sherri talked about focusing “on our relationships with one another, that we focus on building and becoming a community of love and compassion and respect, for one another, as well as for the world, starting right here with this particular group—the Board” and build on our strengths together as the community here at Westminster, where we are now. The main business before the Board in March was the 5 remits required by the General Council, which were all passed.
