Lunch & Learn
2 Timely Topics in October
at the Raleigh Baptist Association
820 S New Hope Rd, Raleigh
# 1 - Examining Church Policies Following the Supreme Court Decision of
June 26, 2015
Monday, Oct. 12 - 10:30 am w/ Lunch
Leader: Dr. Brian Davis, Associate Executive Director-Treasurer, Baptist State Convention of NC
The focus of this learning experience will include church policies related to weddings and facilities use; references are made to the document produced by the BSCNC and distributed to associations in October 2014 (copies will be available). While the title may imply this is simply a seminar on church policies that's not the case.
The framework for the discussion is II Timothy 1:7, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power and of love and of a sound mind." Church policies are addressed but the majority of the session will focus on the mission/purpose of the church to make disciples with the prayer that every congregation might appropriately engage their community, including those struggling with sexual identity in its many expressions.
# 2 - Dealing with Church Staff Benefits: The Affordable Care Act and Insurance Issues, Retirement Planning and more...
Thursday, Oct. 22 - 10:30 am w/ Lunch
Leader: Mr. Davis Blount, GuideStone Consultant, Business Services Group, Baptist State Convention of NC
How well is your church following the Biblical mandate to take care of God's servants? This session will seek to help each person and congregation take advantage of the many resources which GuideStone makes available when making critical decisions related to minister medical care and retirement and taxes.
Every RBA church has to make critical decisions regarding equitable compensation, taxes and medical care that is legally administered in a world of limited resources. Participants can also schedule a personal consultation with Davis following lunch by requesting a time when you register. Ministers and personnel teams will benefit greatly from the information in this session since budget planning is in process.
