2009 Annual Report of the Nominating Committee:
Our Meeting is enriched when all members and regular attenders actively participate in the business life of the meeting. Involvement nurtures the spirit of the individual and strengthens our sense of community. In addition to committee work, some of us have additional unique gifts or leadings. These may be teaching our children on First Day, installing a new roof, standing as a Quaker peace testimony representative in front of the Court House, or delivering lunches to shut-ins. Some also contribute through thoughtful vocal ministry which was as a result of deep spiritual research and preparation for Monthly worship service. Recognizing all this time and effort, the Nominating Committee recommends committees consider consolidation of some of their activities with other committees whenever possible so as not to overly stretch and stress-out our members and attenders.
The Nominating Committee has tried to discern the gifts of all members and attenders to properly position them in the Meeting business activities. We hope the proposed composition of Committees for 2008 will bring new energy to the Meeting sustaining us through the coming year.
