  • Tee is remiss

Worship Report – Tee

  • Thank you to Zyzzy, Tim and Tee for leading this cycle.
  • As always, we need others to lead service.
  • Let’s look at the calendar for November and December
  • Kiva service for THANKSGIVING

    Add in the small stories from Kiva.org

  • Started a Worship survey. What do you think we should ask?

    Open ended

    If you attend the service, what do you like or not like

    If you have attended and no longer attend….what would entice you to come again.

    Do you prefer familiar music or new music, or some of each? Favorite song from our usual list?

New Business

  • Consider making speaker compensation same for prepared topic vs generic service – simpler, both are valuable, difficult in different ways, compensation difference implies that we value one nurturing more than the other. (TED)
  • Consider making all services the same stipend?
  • Consider a bonus for the first N services one leads?
  • Sofia moved: All services pay a L$1000 stipend per service, prepared or generic. Seconded. Approved.
  • November Leader’s Group meeting is currently scheduled for Thanksgiving Day, is that awkward? (TED)

November and December meetings will be combined on December 8.

The meeting was adjourned at 6:14 pm SLT
