A regular meeting of the elders of Harris Creek Baptist Church was called to order on September 14, 2016, at 6:30 a.m. P. Michael Smith, Chair, presided. A quorum was present. In attendance were Blair Browning, Brady Herbert, Chris Holmes, Brad Lail, and Jim Underwood. Also in attendance were Joey White, Trent Horner, Rebecca Harris, and Jon Green.
P. Michael Smith opened the meeting in prayer.
The minutes from the August 10th meeting were reviewed and approved.
Joey White led a review of the August financials for the Church. The finances have continued to be very positive with higher than budgeted receipts. The expenses for August were a bit higher than budgeted but mostly due to certain timing issues. The net result was favorable.
Trent Horner sought approval for a $25,000 gift to help with initial start-up costs for Mission Waco's new grocery. These funds came from funds set aside for missions but not yet designated for any other particular usage. The elders continue to be enthusiastic regarding our partnership with Mission Waco and unanimously approved this request.
Brad Lail led a discussion concerning the identification of possible new elders. These discussions will continue and the elders would appreciate the Church's prayers for wisdom on such matters.
Brady Herbert provided a preview of upcoming events within the Church.
The needs of the body were discussed and the elders closed in prayer.
