Moderator Moment 
October 2023

Church Council met on September 18th, with 14 in attendance.

Membership Meeting scheduled October 15th following the service. With the events impacting the Spencer Church the Council has received a proposal for a full inspection of the existing lightning protection system and to make repairs and add new components as needed for full compliance with UL96a standard for lightning protection system installations at a cost not to exceed $15,000.00

This meeting, as required by bylaw, will be posted on October 8th. While the Church has various funds to pull from to potentially cover the expense the Council asks those that can to support a fundraising initiative to cover the cost. The greatest expense is the cost of a crane to reach the top of the steeple. Your support is most welcomed.

The Council heard reports related to Apple Country Fair preparations. This year we are inviting the “Catholics” to join in pie baking. With the latest Board of Health requirements, the “Catholics” cannot prepare pies as in the past. Truly an ecumenical moment. If you have not signed up to help either pie preparations or the Tag sale, there is still time.

Under new business we learned of Mason Oxman’s Eagle project to supply kits for teens diagnosed with diabetes. The Council voted to support Mason by granting $500 toward his goal from “Scout” funds now under the Church’s responsibility.

Yours Faithfully,

Clarence (Punk) Snyder
