Leadership Development Workshops

The Henry Administrative Council made a scheduling change for the next 12 months.  Rather than meet every two months to discuss the business of the church, the leadership council of the church will meet monthly for the next 12 months.  The additional six meetings will be focused on leadership development of our ministry team leaders.  These meetings are open to anyone who leads a ministry or interested in leading a ministry.  We will be using the book "10 Prescriptions for a Healthy Church" and Pastor Will is leading the discussions.  We hope that everyone called to leadership or with a passion to lead ministry will come and participate in the discussion and learning.

In the Garden, October 2017

Church members attended a post In the Garden meeting on September 19th.  It was decided that $2,000 will be transferred to the building fund to help with the Moving and Parsonage expenses incurred this year.  Another $1,000 will go to UMCOR for hurricane and flood relief in the devastated areas of Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.  Proceeds have already been sent to Africa University ($300), the Henry Ecumenical VBS ($200) and Seven Baskets Food Pantry ($300).  

Next years event will be held on April 25th, 2018.  Our first planning meeting will be on Tuesday, February 6th.  If you have creative ideas for the garden market/bazaar, please share them.  Contact the church office to share  your ideas or volunteer to participate.
