    • Session approved Reverend Passante’s nomination as a commissioner to the next General Assembly, June 18-25, 2016 in Portland, Oregon.
    • First read of Personnel Policy was submitted for consideration in anticipation of approval at the September meeting.
    • Session approved the course To Run But Not Grow Tired to be offered on Sunday morning this fall. 
    • Session approved the following recommendations for Sunday morning worship this fall:  
       (1)  Adopt the Noah Team’s original proposal to start the Traditional Service, Children’s, Youth and Adult Sunday School at 9:15 a.m., allowing for a 30-45 minute of purposeful fellowship time between the 9:15 and 11:00 services.
       (2)  That there be a constructive use of the time between services in order that worshippers from the first service stay to fellowship with 11:00 worshippers. This would include all ministries of the church, and would likely require a “champion” to coordinate this effort. 
       (3)  Celebrate weekly communion at both services by intinction, with communion being served in the pews at the 9:15 service on the first Sunday of the month.

    Nothing is too large or too small to take to our Lord in prayer. MPC’s Stephen Ministry will begin a training class for Stephen Ministers this fall. Why not take this opportunity to pray and seek the Lord’s guidance about whether He is calling you to this new ministry? This may be just the ministry He has prepared for you.
