Date/Time/Location: June 8, 2020, 6:30pm
Present: Pastor Bill, Pastor Ben, Jacob Guenther, Jeff Guenther, Jim Vogel, Ronald Takacs, Jason Seiberlich, Kevin Rasmussen
Absent: JoJo Moore
Pastor Ben led a devotion on Psalm 46. If we have a small view of God then we have big problems. If we have a big view of God then we have small problems. God is a refuge. We do not need to be afraid; God is always with us and is in control. Be fed daily by God’s Word
“GO” (Sharing Jesus)
Online Bible Studies
Pastor Bill has been offering Joining Jesus on His Mission Bible Studies online on Tuesday nights. This study wrapped up this week. It was meant to give viewers practical, real-life advice for sharing Jesus in their unique life situations.
Pastor Ben has set up a watch party with 3 families to join together and worship together with our streamed services. Other sites are being considered; there are opportunities north of Milwaukee to host these.
This ministry opportunity is getting ready to launch. Jake volunteered to host a neighborhood party. The goal is to roll these out in the next month.
GATHER (Worship together)
Reopening In-Person Worship
Victory held a series of three trainings for volunteers on our reopening procedures. We’ll host “soft reopen” weekends on June 13/14 and June 20/21 with the partial reopening starting June 27/28. Other churches who have reopened their services are seeing low attendance (approximately 20% of typical).
Small Group Communion
The pastors offered several opportunities for small group Communion. These were not well attended. Approximately 100 people took the Lord’s Supper during these opportunities.
Groups (Bible Studies & Small Groups)
Pastor Ben has been leading a Bible Study on Wednesday mornings on Facebook to help people dig deeper into the sermon text from the previous weekend. Dozens of people have been watching and commenting, both live and later throughout the week.
GIVE (Offering & Finances)
FY 2020-2021 Budget
The team discussed next year’s fiscal budget in-depth, including employee salaries. This should be ready by July 1.
An anonymous donor has given $20,000 to help increase the quality of our digital presence. This money will be utilized to purchase equipment for the worship band, equipment for the tech booth and live streaming, and technology for filming Bible Studies and other videos to share the Gospel. We are blessed!
GROW (individual Bible study)
Members of the team discussed how they are growing in their faith. They discussed how they can be in their Bibles daily, attend the monthly lectures on-line, participate in the Facebook live studies on Wednesday at 7:00am with Pastor Ben, and attend church.
Kari and Ron are working with the City of Franklin to address design and permit issues. We will work to get the maximum number of parking spaces possible based on the design and building codes. Process may be delayed longer than anticipated
A temporary roof repair was done in the Victory Kids hallway this winter, and the permanent repair was done this spring. There is also a leak above the men’s restroom that needs to be repaired. The team believes both should be under warranty. Jeff will follow up.
Next meeting is scheduled for July 13, 2020 at 6:30 pm.
