Presbyterian Church in Columbia, Maryland
Worship Every Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Summary of the August 21, 2023 Session Meeting

The Session unanimously approved the installation of a freestanding church sign on the southwest corner of the Shaker Drive entrance to the parking lot. It will be identical to the sign by the Amherst Avenue entrance and will also be erected and paid for by the Property Committee at great savings to the church. The sign will be located on a wide easement between the driveway and the church’s vacant lot.

In other business:

  • Work on rectifying the ongoing humidity issue in the sanctuary will continue with testing to determine if the current air handling unit needs to be upgraded or if there are air leaks in the attic – or a combination of those issues requires attention.
  • The Finance Committee reported that budgeting for 2024 is getting underway.
  • A group of church members interested in serving on the Hunger Task Force, a project prioritized by the congregation in the recent Visioning Project, plans to hold an organizational meeting within the next few weeks.
  • Pastor Hoffman announced that he will be encouraging committees to restart some popular churchwide activities that were dropped when the pandemic began, as well as injecting new ideas to the mix, with the goal of bolstering everyone’s sense of connection to the church and each other.
