November 18 was the night of our direction setting congregational meeting. We asked the members of Trulls Road Church to vote on whether to continue going forward with plans to develop a multipurpose room addition. It was a good meeting with lots of discussion and interest shown. Over one hundred members attended and the result was a clear majority in favour of moving ahead. 84 % voted in favour of the motion to explore the concept further. Thanks to all who attended and we are looking forward now to seeing what comes next.
We are hoping to meet with the Town of Clarington soon to clarify what is needed to amend our site plan agreement. Lots of work yet to be done in order to come back to the Society with a final design and a proposed budget. We will keep you posted here along the way.
Of course the issue remains of how to fund this project - which we are calling Project Caleb. Just as Caleb and Joshua explored the promised land so many years ago and reported back to the people that it was a good land, flowing with milk and honey, so too we will need faith to see the provision of the Lord in building such an addition.
The good news reported at the meeting was that as we head into the last 6 weeks of 2012 it looks very positive financially for this year at this point. We may not meed our proposed budget but it looks like our expenses will be met and for this we are truly grateful.
Until next post - blessings to you!
