At our Business Meeting Wednesday night, our church voted to keep the Joash's Chest open for anyone who would like to continue giving for future ministry plans as adopted by the church. All funds given to Joash's Chest from this point forward will be put in our Vision 2010 Fund which will be used for future ministries in accordance with our Long-Range Plan. The Church Council is currently working on an assessment of where we are in terms of our 2010 Plan, and what steps we need to take in implementing or revising the goals not yet achieved.
Joash's Chest was created for members to help retire Cornerstone's Debt, one of the major goals of the Vision 2010 plan. When Joash's Chest was started, the church was still $152,000 in debt. Cornerstone is now debt-free, with the final payment made in October.
