Meeting Results: Church Office Building
Last Wednesday River of Life Church had a member’s meeting where the elders presented an update regarding our vision for 2012: “Casting a Wider Net”. Many topics were covered with some very exciting details. Among them are the following:
- River is overflowing! We are continually over 80% capacity in weekly attendance.
- www.LifeOverflowing.org - New domain to better communicate our vision to the community.
- 8 AM Service – We will be adding another Sunday morning service starting this fall.
- Radio Program – River will have our very own weekly radio broadcast at the end of this summer.
- Financial Update – River is 30% over budget in our giving compared to our YTD goal.
- Office Building – We reviewed a proposal to purchase the building next door for much needed space.
After first sharing about the office building property at our annual meeting in December, we met last Wednesday and had an at-length discussion on this topic. The elders gave our members a tour of the building, and then dismissed, asking each member to pray & come back the following Wednesday for prayer & a follow-up meeting.
Tonight, after spending an hour in prayer inside the office building, the members gathered again for the follow-up meeting regarding the office building purchase proposal. I am happy to inform you that it was voted unanimously to increase our 2012 budget & purchase this building! We will most likely be closing sometime mid-June and moving in soon after that. Please keep your eyes & ears open for more details on the move date. Pastor Bob’s office will be relocated to the office building, and Caryn will have a dedicated reception area & desk.
We are very excited about this, as it will give us a lot more space for offices, storage, & more. This also provides us with much opportunity for meetings, studies, & groups to gather as well. Many more details will be coming soon. Thank you to all of our faithful members & attendees for making the Kingdom a priority in your lives. May God be glorified as we use this extended space for His glory & that the gospel of Jesus Christ may be proclaimed more than ever!
