The annual meeting is a chance for the church to gather together and assess the health and ministry of the church. During the annual meeting we will take time to look back on the church over the previous year and celebrate the things God has done in and through this church community. But this is not simply a time to 'look back' but also an opportunity to 'look ahead' as well. We will look into next year and see the opportunities and, yes, some of the challenges we are facing in the upcoming year.
Additionally, we will take a look at the financial situation of the church and how that may affect how we approach our opportunities and challenges in the upcoming year.
Lastly, the annual meeting is the tradtional time that we, as a church body, vote. At the meeting we will vote, by ballot, on those who will represent us on the church board in the upcoming years as well as those who will represent our church at the annual gathering of the Washington Pacific District of the Church of the Nazarene in Olypmia in April.
