WARNING OF ANNUAL MEETING

282ND MEETING OF THE EAST GRANBY CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH

 

 

The two hundred eighty-second (282nd) Annual meeting of the East Granby Congregational Church will be held on Sunday, January 27, 2019, at 12:00 PM in the Church Sanctuary.  The purpose of the meeting is to approve the annual reports of the ministries, approve the new ministry members, and act on other items on the agenda.  The annual report will be available no less than one week prior to the meeting.  All members of the Church are encouraged to review the report and consider all agenda items in advance of the meeting, and to be in attendance, so that they may actively participate in the discussions and actions to be taken.

 

PROPOSED TRANSFER OF CHURCH FINANCIAL ASSETS 
TO FUND THE CHECKING ACCOUNT

 

The Church Council of the East Granby Congregational Church unanimously recommends a vote of the membership to approve the following:

 

“That the East Granby Congregational Church Trustees are authorized to transfer sufficient funds from available Church accounts, as necessary, to fund the Church Checking Account, so as to be able to meet approved expenses during 2018.  Such an approved transfer amount for 2018 not to exceed $40,000.”

 

Explanation:

 

In view of the projected budget deficit for 2018, it will probably be necessary to transfer monies from available Church assets to our Church Checking Account.  This is a cash flow issue and approval is being sought to authorize the Trustees to be able to transfer Church assets, up to $40,000, to our Church Checking Account, as necessary. Only amounts necessary to fund our Church Checking Account will be transferred during 2018.
