Congregational Meeting – this Sunday 1/26

Cpngregational Meeting

This Sunday – January 26th after worship 

Being Presbyterian means specifically that we govern our church through the leadership of a council of elders (called presbyters in ancient Koine Greek).  Our annual congregational meeting is the way in which we elect new officers (elders and deacons) as well as make decisions as a community regarding specific things such as the call of any pastor(s).  This is being presbyterian at its best.  Our meeting should last for roughly 30 minutes.

On the agenda:

Report of Nominating Committee – Election of Officers

Election of the 2014 Nominating Committee

Hearing about the budget for 2014

Voting on the terms of call of the pastor

Invitation to ministry

Celebratory prayer of gratitude

Report of the 2014 Nominating Committee

The nominations committee is pleased be presenting at our Jan 26th, Congregation meeting the following candidates for our Session and Deacon Board classes of 2014, to serve three-year terms:

To Session,

David Kittams (1st term), Sharon Nelson (2nd term)

To Deacon Board,

Jeanne Pinkler (1st term), Toni Proulx (2nd term)

Please pray for the Lord’s wisdom to rest upon our church leadership.

 After the meeting we’re gathering together for a potluck lunch.  Bring a dish to share and come ready to get to know someone better, enjoy a laugh with old friends, and quite possibly to try something you’ve never eaten before!

We’ll gather for lunch downstairs in the Light House Room after the Congregational Meeting, approximately at 12:20pm.
