Dear DCC Member,
Wow! What a year! This will go down in history for many of us as the strangest and craziest year in our lives. As we move into our next fiscal year (Sept 1, 2021 – Aug 31, 2022), we have much to celebrate. As of June 30 we met our revenue budget! This is only possible because of you. Thank you for your generosity.
Attached (links below) is the draft General Fund Budget and draft Ministry Plan. We will continue to adjust ministry to stay focused on encouraging and caring for our congregation. Explanation Notes, which explains the changes from last year’s budget, are also attached. Our current giving is sufficient to cover the proposed increase.
This year we are nominating to the congregation four new elders: Matt Dayton (returning elder), Meredith Smith, Mike Graham, and Donna Tyburski. Their bios are available below. Please take some time and read them. If you do not know them, we invite you to get to know them. We are also saying goodbye to five elders: Barb Hofmeister (resigned due to moving), Paul Wardlaw, Cindi McDonald, Bruce Butler, and Judy Morgan, all of whom are rotating off due to term limits. Please take some time and express your gratitude to each of them for their service during this trying time.
Our congregational meeting is scheduled immediately after the amphitheater service on August 29 and will be held in the sanctuary of DCC. At this meeting we will vote on these important decisions, and trust God to provide for his church and our community.
We are truly grateful for your generosity, your love for DCC, and your active participation. On behalf of the elders and staff, thank you for making DCC a great church!
Warmly in Christ,
Paul Wardlaw, Elder President Jim Howard, Sr Pastor
