Synod Council returns after the summer break

MNYS_logo_stacked
Synod Council began their all-day meeting with a brief devotion and an opportunity to share a personal story by council member, something that will continue at each meeting. Our Synod Council then acted to extend calls to specialized and interim ministry as well as to grant on leave from call status and retirement status. Tom Massey, our strategic plan consultant, worked with the council to see where we’ve been with our strategic plan and where we are headed as we look to refresh the plan and its initiatives. Reports were given from staff, strategic plan committees, the Stewardship and Mission Support table, and follow up from previous assembly actions. The council also voted to create supporting organizations, a resolution that was referred back to the Synod Council by the 2016 Synod Assembly, and took action on pending property contracts. We spent longer time looking at the financial reports as many of the council members are new to the council. The minutes from this meeting will be available after they are approved at the October meeting.
