The By-laws Committee has been hard at work since May of 2015
revising the existing church by-laws. After meetings with two focus
groups—the first comprised of standing church officers, the second
comprised of the standing deacons—the committee has determined
that the revised by-laws are now ready for church consideration. It is
very important to the By-Laws Committee that the entire church have
ample time to consider all revisions, as well as have ample opportunity
to pose questions and/or offer suggestions. To that end, the committee
has scheduled a very deliberate roll-out process, and the pertinent dates
are as follows:
Wednesday, October 12th, copies of both the current by-laws and the
new by-laws will be accessible via our church website (electronically)
and in the main office (hard copy).
Monday, October 24th, from 7PM-8:30PM, in advance of and in
preparation for the official presentation, the By-laws Committee will be
holding an open forum in the church library to hear member feedback
and answer questions members might have.
Wednesday, November 2nd, at 6:15PM, the By-laws Committee will
officially present the proposed by-laws revisions. Questions will then be
heard and discussed.
Wednesday, November 9th, at 6:15PM, a special business meeting will
be convened to vote on the motion to accept the revised by-laws as
presented on November 2nd.
This is a matter of great importance to our church, and as such the By-
laws Committee wants to ensure that all feedback is duly considered
and that member buy-in is unanimous. Therefore, please take the
opportunity to get copies of the existing by-laws, compare them with
the proposed by-laws revision, make notations of any questions,
suggestions, or concerns, and plan to attend both the open forum on
October 24th and the official presentation on November 2nd.
All my love,
