Leadership Team Meeting Minutes – April 2018

Leadership Team Meeting Minutes – April 2018


Date/Time/Location: April 9, 2018 6:30-9:00pm at the Ministry Center

Present: Jim Vogel, Jay Justmann, Ron Takacs, Jim Kehoe, Jeff Guenther, Steve Abramowski, Jason Seiberlich, Pastor Bill


Our meeting began with a devotion based on Psalm 129.  Here, we are reminded that even as Christians we will undergo oppression.  However, God will never give us more than we can handle.  We can always rely on Him to hang on to us and never let go.  What a great comfort this is!

Discussion Topics

Easter: Our Easter services had great attendance.  The numbers were up 10% from last Easter.

Service Times: After looking at our Easter attendance, a conversation was started about changing our church service times.  We are looking at possibly changing our regular service times to 9:00 and 10:30.  We also talked about having “Festival Service Times” for days like Easter and Christmas.  The service times for these days could be 8:30 and 10:15.  This would give a little more time in between services for people coming and leaving the Ministry Center.

Call Update: The Leadership Team is hoping to have another Call meeting on April 29th.  Just remember, the Lord is watching over us at VotL.  He already has the perfect person for us to be the next Pastor at VotL.  God is always in control.

Graphics: The Leadership Team is excited to have Naomi continue to do projects for VotL.  Her graphics and designs are simply amazing, and will continue to be used in our worship folders and other areas at VotL.

Soccer Camp: Soccer Camp dates have been decided: 6/25-6/28.  $50 per camper.
