July 26, 2014

The First Baptist Church of Wilson held its Annual Meeting at noon on Sunday, July 25, 2014 with 30 members in attendance. The members of the Elder Board each offered updates and answered questions from the congregation.  Financial reports for the last fiscal year (July 1, 2013-June 30, 2014) were reviewed.  The new budget was discussed and a motion was made and seconded (Chris Scrufari, Brian Meacham) to approve the new budget for July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015.  It was noted that a new mission budget will be established for the following fiscal year.

A discussion of the church property as well as the recent purchase of property was discussed and a list of ideas was assembled for the elders to prayerfully consider.  Pastor Tim reported on  the outcome of a meeting with the Executive Pastor of ABC/NYS and discussed our current affiliation with American Baptist Churches. Following discussion, a motion was made and seconded (Chris Scrufari, Lois Farley) to allow the elders to begin to examine other denominations or affiliations with a goal of leaving the ABC in the future.  This motion passed without dissent.

A general Q&A time followed and the meeting adjourned at 1:45 pm

Respectfully submitted, Douglas Farley, Executive Elder
