From: Fellowship Committee meeting of Jan. 8, 2007
The desire for growth was unanimous among those attending the meeting:
Connie Greene, Lissa Fernandez, Ruth Jernigan, Betsy Leerssen, Susan
Merriam, Anna Smith, Jake Smith.
Talking point development:
- We recognize that growth would increase the
demands on the Fellowship Committee (possibility of 2 services).
- We would
need increased space, furnishings.
- We would need dedicated space, not
shared with a tenant.
- In the current space, we would need to take down
room partitions to better accommodate functions.
- We would remodel the
kitchen to include additional dishwasher, etc.
- We recommend careful
investigation of the plans made by recent past presidents on alternative
use of existing space. (See the 2005
Presidents' Task Force Report)
- We would continue recognizing that
the management of fellowship is continually evolving and adapting
to the changes in our congregation and the structures provided for
Talking point: The Fellowship Committee fosters opportunities
for members and friends to gather at social functions to enhance community
