    Minutes of the 2015 Annual Meeting Trinity Lutheran Church

    Minutes of the 2015 Annual Meeting of Trinity Lutheran Church, January 24, 2016

    President Curt Krause called the meeting to order in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost at 10:15 a.m. Motion to approve agenda was made by Dean Buendorf, second by Terry Hansen. Motion carried. Pastor Paul Andree shared his Pastoral Acts conducted during 2015. Congregation was asked to review reports as printed. A discrepancy in The Avenue of the Flags was noted by Leann Buendorf. Total receipts should reflect $100.56 and not $263.55. Also, noted by Barb Finseth the bal- ance date reflected in the WELCA report should read 12/31/15 and not 12/31/14. Also, the Cemetery Report was submitted by Mary Berg which was not reflected. Alter Guild balance on hand date should read Jan 1, 2016 and not Jan 1, 2015. No discrepancies reported in the audit. Mary Berg was recognized for doing a great job. Treasurer’s Report was given. Balance at the time of this meeting was -$13,241.35. Motion to approve Treas- urer’s report made by Adryn Peterson, second by Dean Buendorf. Motion carried. Nominating Committee Report was given by Curt Krause. He announced Dave Sandry, Brenda Dobberstein and Tom Pautsch as nominees for TLC council members. Unanimous vote welcomed these new council members. Endowment Fund Report was given. Terry Hansen presented information to the congregation regarding the balances and suggested that if monies are withdrawn for various projects the council should seek advice from a financial advisor before doing so. This would allow withdrawals which would be most advantageous. No old business discussed. New business discussed included repairs to the flat roof above the lounge, entry way and church offices. Also discussed was tuck pointing needed to brick. Estimates have not been received to date, but it is estimated these projects will be upwards to $100,000.00. Please note that it is critical these repairs be made during 2016. Motion was made by Vince Peterson and second by Leann Buendorf to authorize council to accept bids and hold another congregational meeting once these bids are received. At that time it will be decided which funds will be utilized to appropriate costs. Motion carried. Other new business discussed was recovering the church pews. $3,000.00 has been delegated by WELCA to offset cost. Motion to adjourn made by Barb Finseth, second by Arlys Edwards. Motion carried. Meeting closed with The Lord’s Prayer. Respectfully submitted, Becca Solberg

    CHURCH COUNCIL PRESIDENT’S REPORT 2016

    As in 2015, 2016 has also been an eventful year at Trinity Lutheran Church. We have still accomplished much, but it seem like with fewer regular Sunday attendees. This could be a challenge if we let it become one. I am hoping our church community can continue to maintain all of the programs that we have here. As the new year starts I want to say thank you to each member of Trinity for all that they do, financially, talent wise, and time that is put in. Because of everyone involved our church community is enriched and en- hanced when everyone is involved. A special thank you to everyone on the church council, Pastor Paul and Rhonda, Mary Berg, financial sec- retary, our church secretary and custodian. As I said last year lets all commit ourselves to be a welcoming church for new families, and the disen
