Worship Co-cos asked landscape volunteers to meet with Ann to prepare the grounds for the Easter Sunrise Service on April 5th.
Learning Co-Co spoke about the culmination of the Literacy Initiative. Pilgrim will be collecting children’s books for Faithworks families.
Gathering accurate contact information for all those attending Pilgrim is a critical issue.We discussed making an IT commitment to catch up with the tech revolution.This involves rethinking our church office staff. We need to incorporate building use management and IT management capacity in the job description of the Office Manager. The Council discussed tasking the Personnel Committee, in conjunction with the Connecting Co-Cos, with designing a job description for Pilgrim’s office staff. It was recommended that whatever written policies already exist be consulted.
It was moved and seconded that the Personnel Committee be directed to update the job description of our current Office Manager position to be consistent with technology and building management requirements. All voted in favor of the motion.
