From the Mission Endowment Fund Committee Chairperson, Michael Taiclet

And the winner is…Greetings and Blessings to all from MEF.  I hope everybody’s summer is going well and continues to go well!  Maybe we will get lucky and see some sun.  I know, we are in Ohio.  Sun?  What is that?  Well, anyway, I would like to just update you, the congregation, on our progress since our last meeting.  I am pleased to announce that we have decided upon a 2019 MEF Award recipient.  I can tell you that the MEF Committee and myself think that this recipient is a very good and deserving choice for this award.  I am not going to announce the name of the recipient currently due to the fact that we are still in the process of notifying them and working out the details for MEF Award Sunday.  However, mark your calendars!  I can tell you that MEF Award Sunday will be on Sunday, October 13, 2019 (the second Sunday of October) at which the award will be presented, at both services, to a representative of the 2019 MEF Award recipient.  We will be meeting again in November and I am looking for names of any groups and/or organizations that could benefit from our award.  A list of possible candidates needs to be ready in time for our November meeting in order to approve them as possible candidates.  Once approved, we then can send out the necessary paperwork and applications to these groups in order for them to return the applications back in time for our meeting in April.  So, I am asking if you know of any groups and/or organizations, please let any member of the MEF Committee know – me, Missy LaRock, Ronda Leitch, Tootie Rogers, Lamar Shoemaker, and/or Pastor Bill.  You may also leave a note in the MEF mailbox at the church if you would like.  Finally, I would like to thank the MEF Committee members for their commitment and hard work that they continue to put in for the Mission Endowment Fund.  I especially would like to thank them for putting up with all the repeated date changes for our last meeting due to scheduling conflicts.  So, thanks!  I would also like to thank all those who have contributed and those who continue to contribute to the Mission Endowment Fund.  Without you, this fund would not be possible and we would not be able to help those in need.  The Mission Endowment Fund, in its 22 years of existence, just would not be thriving and continuing onward without the support of each and every one of you.
