Preliminary 2018 Annual Meeting Packet

Congregational Meeting January 28th

Our Annual Congregational meeting is January 28th, 2018, following worship. All members are invited and encouraged to attend.

Please note that this year, if the way be clear via session approval on Thursday Jan 11, there will be a bylaws change proposed (which requires congregational approval) that restructures board sizes and term lengths. There will also be the usual business of reporting on statistics, approving pastor’s terms of call, presenting financial matters, electing corporate officers, and electing elders, deacons, and nominating team members.

Packets (including marked-up proposed Bylaws revisions) will be out before January 21st in print and electronic forms, and available to be picked up after church. If you would like one mailed or emailed to you please let the church office know. Your voice is needed, so please plan to attend!
