Present: Pastor Tim Mason, Sherri Clark, Betty Hardaway, So Young Namikawa, Garret Pick, Tom German
Excused: Marilyn Hamada
Betty provided feedback to Pastor Tim regarding the letters for visitors. No issues here. Stephanie is sending the letters based on the guest book and visitor cards filled out on Sundays.
Yukio Hamada has composed a letter to be sent to inactive members which would be signed by Yukio and Pastor Tim. The group discussed it and suggested possibly reordering the letter so that the second paragraph is first. This would come more to the point and state the objective of the letter. Tom will follow-up with Yukio.
SoYoung showed example of handout from New Hope church. She also described her experience attending an Easter service there. She also passionately talked about her experience with bringing the MEJ concert to Hawaii. Group feels that it’s important to have an actual tear-off dedicated to prayer request/visitor information. SoYoung will bring sample from First Pres. to next meeting.
TEO. Marilyn is not concerned about the auction items. She also feels that we will at least break even. However, we still need to focus on ticket sales as we are only a week and a half away from the event Sherri offered to help Garret Friday evening April 27 by watching his kids during setup from 4-4:30. Evangelism team will make a plea to the congregation on Sunday.
Sherri talked with Ted Hsia and he said we could share the existing Global Missions bulletin board. Tom to discuss hiking, kayaking, other activities
Tom and Betty will compose a letter for Linda to email to the congregation tomorrow. Need to sell more tickets and need more volunteers.
