Old Business

Clean-out of Storage Room (Removal of Remaining items Tuesday)

Unneeded items will be cleaned out of the storage room this coming Tuesday and Beth will contact Good Will or the 4C’s to have them picked up.

Resignation of Pastor Shelli and Safe Harbor / Creator Relations

The relationship between Creator and Safe Harbor has been evolving in the last few months.  Pastor Shelli Poe of Safe Harbor is moving out of the area in the latter part of March and will no longer be the pastor at Safe Harbor.  There exist some differing opinions between Safe Harbor and Creator as to what each party should expect from the other.  Creator would like Safe Harbor to acknowledge Creator in their promotional materials such as advertisements, Facebook, etc.  Safe Harbor, however, wants to make sure that they retain their own identity.  Safe Harbor would like to have a legal contract for a yearly rental agreement and to no longer be expected to donate supplies for both churches’ use.  Pastor Bob and Ross will meet with Safe Harbor leadership to clarify and address these issues.



The next Vestry Meeting will be held March 20, 2023, at 6:30 PM.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:12 P.M.


Ross Turner

Senior Warden
