November 29, 2017
For almost 50 years, God has blessed our church with resources and talents that have provided us with opportunities to further His Kingdom’s work in Middle Tennessee and around the world. 2017 has been no exception. Our church family has expanded to six growing and thriving campuses as a result of the Middle Tennessee Initiative. A seventh campus in Nolensville is set to launch in early 2018. Our missions work continues to spread the gospel into new parts of the world. It has been humbling and exciting to witness life-changing responses to the risen Christ that have occurred this year as a result of our ministries. All of this is possible because of your faithfulness and stewardship of the resources He has blessed you with this year. Thank you.
The proposed 2018 budget for Brentwood Baptist, including all campuses, is now available for your review. This information represents the result of much prayer by staff and lay leadership. We believe this ministry plan and budget support the vision God has provided, and we appreciate your continued support in 2018.
In addition to the proposed 2018 budget, you will also have the opportunity to vote on proposed updates to the Church Charter and Bylaws. The Church Charter and Bylaws are updated occasionally to reflect changes in organizational structure or practice or to reinforce or restate a theological or doctrinal position. The Brentwood Baptist Church Trustees are recommending the Church affirm changes to our Charter and Bylaws. If approved, this update will be the fifth version of the Charter and Bylaws since the Church was established in 1969.
A side-by-side comparison of current Bylaws with proposed changes will be available at our Welcome Desks this Sunday, or you can click here to learn more.
Voting on the proposed 2018 budget and the changes to the Church Charter and Bylaws will take place in services on December 10 and 17. Voting is a privilege of Brentwood Baptist membership.
This Sunday, December 3, you are invited to attend one of two Town Hall Meetings, hosted by the Finance Ministry Team and the Trustees. At these meetings we’ll discuss the proposed 2018 budget and proposed bylaw updates and answer any questions you may have. Join us at The Church at Avenue South for a Town Meeting at 4:00 p.m. or at the Brentwood campus at 5:00 p.m. in the Inman Deaf Chapel.
