An invitation from Jenny Harrits, Council President

Summer is coming! At church, this means the end-of-the-year for some programs and events and just the beginning for others. Ministry is exciting and year-round at SOTV! We are grateful for all the ways in which each of you are part of the life of this faith community.

The Church Council and Leadership Teams have been working hard to prepare for the upcoming 2016-2017 Fiscal Year. All confirmed members of SOTV are encouraged to attend.

 

Sunday, June 5, 2016
12:15 pm
Rooms 20-22
Light Refreshments Only

 

Together at the meeting, we will...

Celebrate Ministry

For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another. We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us.
— Romans 12:4-6

We are grateful to God for blessing and enriching the ministries of SOTV. Come hear the good news and celebrate what has been done together as partners in ministry.
 

See What’s Next

We will share upcoming plans for vision and ministry at SOTV. Your partnership in this faith community is vital. 

Balance Our Budget

At last year’s annual meeting, the congregation approved a deficit budget (with expenses expected to be higher than income) for the 2015-2016 fiscal year. It was also announced that the Council would not recommend a deficit budget for the 2016-2017 fiscal year.  With that, leaders have been tasked to balance the budget.  Find out how we are doing and what is planned.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting! Questions can be directed to council@sotv.org.


Give Online in the Summertime

Setting aside a portion of our gifts to give back to God is an important part of our faith lives. Simply Giving is a way to continue your wonderful support of church ministries uninterrupted during the summer months when you are away from town. More information is available at the Welcome Center or online at SOTV.org/giving. Thank you for your generous support all year and for making the ministry of Jesus Christ a priority in your life!
