Recommendation from the Committee on Nominations and Leadership:
Conversations with committee chairs and the Church Council shall be conducted concerning the development of a Congregational Care and Nurture Committee; which could include the Hospitality Committee and Bereavement Committee as Sub-Committees, in order to better plan and create ways to minister to and care for members of our congregation, to be implemented in 2015.
