BRIEF ITEMS FROM THE COUNCIL MEETING
MAY 14, 2008

PASTORAL ACTIVITIES
On Sunday, May 4, Pastor McGuire visited Ascension Lutheran Church , with whom he is in the call process. He will inform the congregation should a call be extended.
He reported on his visit to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church on Addison on Sunday, April 20, to gain insights into their outreach efforts. Holy Trinity has experienced 100% growth in five years. He observed that Holy Trinity is very intentional in the way its members welcome visitors and ask if the visitors need more information. Although we cannot mimic their efforts, we can learn from them and adapt some of their efforts to our situation.
