Motion to approve by Jack Windley and seconded by Chuck Keistler.   APPROVED by show of hands.    Comment:  Shelia Ward:  I made an error last month when I told you there were five Sundays in August.   There are five Sundays in September.  There were three paydays in August so that made the figures that we  saw.  I had that reversed.  We are finished with the budget and I think the deacons will be reviewing it this  Sunday.  Then, of course, it will come to the church for questions, answers, and then finally for a vote.  I  don’t have those exact dates yet.  Cami has done a wonderful job.  She has worked up a new format so the  Budget Committee could actually look at history over twelve months for every budget line as well as every  designated spending from year to date.  It made a world of difference in being able to assess what we have  actually spent between the two offerings, budget and unrestricted and come up with a true figure for the year.   I think you will be pleased with what you see.  Everything looks good here.  For the month of September we  actually had an $8,000 excess which is outstanding.  COMMITTEE REPORTS:  None OLD BUSINESS:  None NEW BUSINESS:    A.
