Each year, AHCC programs, ministries, and clergy report on the events and activities of the previous year in the Annual Report.
This information has been presented to the congregation and to the community at large in many ways. This year, we took a three-pronged approach. The Annual Meeting of the congregation took place on Sunday, June 3 and attendees were given a copy of the Annual Meeting Packet which contained the minutes of the May 2017 Annual Meeting, the necrology, a brief explanation of the mission/purpose of each Committee, the Slate of Nominees for approval, bios of committee chairs, proposed Bylaw amendments, the 2017-18 year end financial forecast, a 2018-2019 DRAFT budget, and the CT Conference Annual Report.
The second part of the communications was the Annual Report Issue of the Hill Church News published on June 1. The timing of this issue coincided with the end of the program year, and allowed Committee chairs to provide a detailed account of their Committee’s activities.
Finally, the Annual Report was published and made available on Homecoming Sunday, September 9. This piece lifts highlights of the year from each ministry area. It will be given to those interested in learning more about AHCC who may want to continue the road to full membership, and used in marketing the church to the community. It is available in hard copy at the church or online in the Member Portal.
