This Sunday we will be making a final decision about whether to have all volunteer elders or to pay one of the elders to serve in a vocational capacity. Both perspectives will be concisely presented prior to taking a vote from those present at the gathering. If you are unable to make it this Sunday, but would still like to vote, please contact Laura, Natasha, Nathan, Tom, or Josh.
We will also have membership proposals available for people to sign and return as pledges of their intent to become covenant members. We are planning on a Dec. 4 consecration service for all those who commit to covenant membership. You can view the membership proposal here.
Covenant members will also be invited to begin nominating people in our church who they feel would be qualified to be elders. We are encouraging members to nominate up to five people, as there will be five positions available. Forms for this purpose will be available on Sunday. A description of elders and their responsibilities will be available this Sunday as well. See you then!
