The Personnel committee members would like to thank everyone for their support of the Bring a Friend to Church Sunday, and for friends and family who also joined us at the “Soup Social” event following the service!! It was great to see everyone there and the Pastor had a great message for our congregation, as usual!
The staff is continuing to stroll along toward the Christmas Holiday Season without missing a step, everyone is doing their part to make this another Wonderful Christmas event at Franklin Presbyterian Church! The staff and members of the congregation and committees are working hard to make sure we celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, and that the Service is a special one.
The Personnel Committee will be leading a review of Rev Elam as is required annually by the Book of Order, this committee has generally been made up from those who were on the search committee who hired Rev Elam. In recent discussions it was suggested that others may like to also be included in the opportunity to provide feedback and serve on this important committee.
During the past several reviews we have provided invaluable feedback to our Pastor and He has adjusted based the information provided each year. I hope everyone has found real meaning and opportunities for reflections hidden in many of the sermons this year, and the opportunities to engage in Bible Study on Tuesday Nights, some of these have been very lively and valuable opportunities for spiritual growth.
If you are interested in helping with staff reviews or have feedback for our church family, Please let me know. Bundle up and stay warm and look after one another during the Christmas Holiday Season, Seek opportunities to help in the Church and in our community. 
If anyone has any comments or questions concerning the staff, Please feel free to contact me directly. If you happen to miss me at church, Please share any positive comments or learning opportunities for our group at  [email protected] or leave me a message in the personnel box in the church office.

Thank You all,
