An update on the budget was provided by Kathy and a handout was provided for the attendees. The balance of the budget is currently $321.07. A donation from the Church was given to the Ladies Circle in the amount of $500.00 for their assistance with the recent funeral of Bob Krueger a former member of Good Shepherd. The Thank You note was circulated for all to see.
All welcomed a new member to the Ladies Circle, Magi Reed from Tucson.
Diana provided an update for LWMS.  Due to the pandemic, Diana explained that she has been updating the poster board with all of the news and letters from LWMS. Also discussed was a donation towards school supplies to the WELS Mission to the Children to help support two Mexican pastors and their families in Mexico.  A $50 donation was approved. Diane will send out today (6/27/2021 due to the deadline is also 6/27/2021).
Me And My Mom Group (MAMMs):  There will be Splash day on July 24, from 9:00 – 2:00 pm here at the Church, with Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Chips and Drinks.  A flyer was created to have it posted on the Next-door website to reach our neighbors and the event has already been posted in the bulletins. Alpha will be distributing the flyer for Splash Day to their clients and will be attending the Splash day event with an informational table set up to make our neighbors aware of the services they provide.
Glenda advised everyone that Good Shepherd has a flower chart in the back of the church for individuals to sign up to put flowers on the alter for various occasions. Glenda then stated that she found the flower chart then could not find it.  She asked if we wanted to just finish out the year with a computer printout and then buy a new flower chart next year.  It was accepted to buy a new chart next year.   
Glenda thanked all that were involved in the serving and cleaning for the memorial service.  The family was overwhelmed.  Pastor Gunn did the service.  The daughter donated two drink dispensers to Good Shepherd.
Counsel is looking at security for Good Shepherd due to the broken windows.  The windows will be replaced this Thursday.  It was moved and seconded to donate $50 towards the replacement of the windows.
Two alter cloths have been found.
Counsel did approve having refreshments again.  August 1 was the date accepted to begin.  We will resume greeters for our church services and the refreshment fellowship after church.  It was agreed that refreshments would be simple, with prepackaged foods.  We have a volunteer, Linda Morris, to make the coffee before each service.  Motion was passed to purchase $50 worth of snacks to start the refreshments. So that we can plan effectively, please volunteer for greeting or serving refreshments either by calling or emailing Ev Turany,, 602-277-6561 or by signing up on a sheet in the back of the church.  If you would like to volunteer for flowers, there is a signup sheet in the back of the church to indicate the date and the occasion.
Pastor and Rachel will be re-doing the Mother’s Room. If you are interested in assisting with the Mother's Room, please contact Pastor (281-919-7887) or Rachel VonDeylen (832-806-0426).  It was mentioned that if the books have the Good Shepherd Lutheran stamp on the front pages, they have been read and vetted for appropriateness.
The Large refrigerator that was donated to the church has stopped working and was removed, so we are back to one refrigerator.  We have clear plastic tablecloths, so in the future we may be able to pick up the lighter weight tablecloths.
As a reminder the chalice for wine for the pastor only needs a little bit of wine.  Do not leave wine in the chalice.  Toss the wine and cups we don’t use. Do not put wine back in the bottle and contact Diana if we are running low.  After service, be sure to count the cups and record the number on the pad in the cupboard.
