There have been those in our congregation that have expressed a desire to help with our funeral
dinners. If you would like the opportunity to prepare a dish or help serve, please sign the sheet across
Funeral Dinners
The following recommendation was presented to the Board by the Elders.  It was discussed and passed by the Board.  It
now is being presented to the Church Congregation for their consideration.

To amend Article IV Section B Paragraph 1 of the Church Constitution.  Article IV Section B Paragraph 1 presently reads:
1.         Elders totaling not more than twelve (12), approximately 1/3 to be elected each year for a term of three years.  After
serving one full term as an Elder, said individual shall not be eligible for re-election to the same position until after the
passage of one intervening year.

It is recommended that the Constitution be amended by striking the second sentence of the above paragraph so that it now
shall read:
1.        Elders totaling not more than twelve (12), approximately 1/3 to be elected each year for a term of three years.

The amendment may be adopted by the congregation at any regular or special meeting.  There will be a Special
Congregational Meeting on September 29th, 75 days from the date the Board voted and approved the recommendation.  

The above recommendation will be published regularly as per Article XI, Section B of the Constitution.
