Church of Our Father – Meeting Minutes Oct 28, 1887 (Church Finances)

Atlanta, Ga. Oct 28, 1887
Meeting of the Board of Trustees in the Chapel at 8 pm.

Present: Messrs. Morley, Fisher, Norrman, Winslow, Klingelsmith and Rev. Mr. Chaney

Mr. Klingelsmith of Committee of Operation of Church reported the employment of a janitor for the winter at $8.00 per month.

Mr. Norrman, from the Finance Committee, reported that they had spent $125.00 on repairs of the Means School building and that this accomplished all necessary repairs and entirely to the satisfaction of Prof. Means as well as our Committee on Care of Property.

Mr. Fisher, from the Committee on Music, reported that he had tendered to Mrs. White the position of soprano in the Church choir and that she had accepted it, much to the gratification of the Committee and the pleasure of the Board.

Mr. Norrman, from the Committee on Finance, reported funds in bank $178.90 and due from other sources than church subscriptions $110.00 more.

It was decided by the Board that it would be best to close all subscriptions for the support of the church at the end of the church year which would be on Nov 1st. And in the future to have the subscriptions book opened at the beginning of our new church year, as this will enable the treasure to make a complete report of the financial condition of the church at the regular annual meeting that takes place the first Monday in Nov.

The Secy of the Board was requested to send a notice to the Committee on Care of Property to look after the broken awning on the front of the church, just in the rear of the pulpit.

The Secy was also instructed to make a report for the Board at the Annual Meeting of the church on the first Monday in November.

The Ways and Means Committee reported that the insurance on the church property had been adjusted, as per discussion at the previous meeting.

Motion to adjourn.


J.M. Klingelsmith, Sec pro Tem.
