Tonight July 28, 2019, we present to the church a Draft Constitution that is the result of many hours of prayer and painstaking work. We want our members to have this document for ample review. We’re getting this proposal to you now in hopes you will read it carefully and contact us with your questions, concerns, or comments. We want to give you as much time as necessary to prayerfully review this document before we proceed with a vote. To help facilitate that, we’ll have a special Constitution & Elder Candidate Q&A Night on September 1 at 6 PM for everyone who desires to participate. Thank you in advance for your willingness to do just that.
Our current constitution requires us to present proposed constitutional amendments in one Members’ Meeting then vote on those amendments in the following Members’ Meeting. No changes can be made without a three-fourths (3/4) approval by the congregation. To that end, we’ll formally present a final draft of the attached Constitution for church approval during our September 29 Members’ Meeting. We’ll then vote on the question during a Members’ Meeting after the morning service on Sunday, October 6.
