Session Notes – May 2017

  • Possible Parish Associate Position:  The Session continued its discussions about the possibility of Western hiring Rev. John Molina-Moore as a part time Parish Associate for Community Life.  The Session discussed the terms under which John might be retained.  The next steps include Laura speaking further with John about his possible partnering with Western.
  • Micah 6:8 Initiative:  The Session’s Cindy Stevens provided an update on the Micah 6:8 initiative.  The Micah 6:8 initiative is a program that seeks to provide opportunities for education and involvement in social justice issues.   Cindy spoke about the Micah 6:8 initiative during worship on May 7.  During the post-service hospitality hour, Cindy fielded questions and provided information about the initiative.  The response was positive, with a number of Westerners expressing an interest in becoming involved with the initiative.
  • Spring Picnic:  The end of the year cookout is scheduled for June 4.  The cookout will be held at Western, following worship, and is being headed up the Deacons.  The Deacons are asking folks to bring desserts and sides.  Thanks, as always, to the Deacons for what should be a terrific event!
