The monthly breakfast/meeting held at Ricks Restaurant was attended by Ronnie, William. Billy, Donnie, Leroy, Max and Stewart. Although we missed doing our own cooking, we enjoyed the food and the camaraderie. We look forward to having more members present at the May meeting on May 2.
Summary of old business:
We will move the donated refrigerator to the kitchen after the April 24 Clean-Up/Tidy-Up church event.
We will make plans to pick up the donated outside sign that Greg Nelson located for us.
Chicken Barbecue--a great success story! Four-hundred half chickens were cooked by the culinary/outdoor cooking specialist Donnie Apple and his team of devoted assistants. The proceeds of this event were split evenly between the Men's, Children's and Ladies Ministries. Thanks for all of your efforts to make this event one of the most successful we have had. We will definitely do this again next year.
Spring Grounds Cleaning: Thanks to the dedicated team work of Ronnie, Max and Steve for transforming our grounds into a well manicured yard. The shrubs and tree trimming look great. Thanks again for everyone's assistance.
New Church Sign for Hwy. 109: Although we liked the design the overall cost was too expensive for our budget.. We are looking at alternate sources and will follow up at the next meeting.
Treasury report was provided by Max.
Kitchen/Social Hall Clean-up is scheduled for Saturday, April 24. We plan on painting and reallocating space for new generation cabinets. We will also identify the future needs, i.e.. new tile for the kitchen area. Clean up starts at 8am.
May 2: Men's Monthly Breakfast Meeting
May 9: "Mother's Day" Church Breakfast.. We will also invite the members of First to join us.

As promised, the following is a brief summary of our February monthly meeting.
Billy Ward opened the meeting with a prayer and asked us to pray for the family of Stacie Pearce. Stewart Grubb shared his spiritual note that he wrote in memory of Stacie Pearce and shared with us some of her fine qualities.
Max Bisher summarized the results of the Chicken stew event that we had in January. Thanks to everyone in the church for their help and support. We look forward to another stew. Part of the revenue received from this event will be given to a church member for the next three months. ($100.00 per month for a total of $300.00) Click Here Photos
Billy Ward is revising the telephone tree program to ensure that all men are contacted and made aware of meetings and other planned events. Thanks Billy.
On Sunday, February 15th we will: Provide lunch for the Sunday school teachers from First and Canaan. Initiate a work group to assembly the new lights for the sanctuary that Greg Nelson will install on Monday, February 16th. We will also install a donated fan, pick up another outdoor sign, and a donated refrigerator.
Initial plans were approved for a March 27th Chicken Barbeque that Donnie Apple will supervise. Tickets will be sold for this event. Cost of 1/2 chicken with chips and potato salad is $6.00 per person. All church members will be asked to sell tickets and assist with this event.
We are looking for another great year for our church and our ministry. Thanks for everything you do to support our church and each other.
