The Church Council met on Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 7:00 p.m in room 200. Susan Barrier, our Lay Leader, opened our meeting with lighting the Christ candle and worship. We received a report from Finance on February’s financial statements. Our Lead Pastor, Carl Frazier ask the church council to consider the following questions: Why do people need Jesus Christ?, Why do people need the church?, Why do people need First United Methodist Church Cary?, What ministry is uniquely ours? How do we stay focused on it? Our discernment and responses to those questions will be passed along to the Joel Team to discern a vision for FUMCC. Ralph Gordon closed our meeting with prayer. The Church Council’s next meeting is on Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in room 200. All are welcome to attend.
