Congregational Meeting 2018

Congregational Meeting 2018.png

At our Congregational Meeting this year we will discuss vision, budgets, needs, calling, and God's will in our collective lives.  We can will also reflect on how our Church has been and continues to be blessed with vibrant members, dedicated volunteers, unity, and growth. 

 

 

In 2017 God has blessed us with:

  • 3 babies born in our midst;
  • 6 youth invited to participate in the Lord's Supper;
  • 2 weddings;
  • 5 baptisms
  • 3 young adults graduating from High School;
  • 3 Professions of Faith; and
  • 1 new member. 

We're looking forward to God's continued leading in new and exciting ways in 2018.  

The congregational meeting is an opportunity for our Church to reflect on the last year, pray over and discuss new opportunities to serve God's kingdom in our community, and enjoy each others company.  

Below is a draft agenda for the evening.  

Due to the number of pages - a copy WILL NOT BE placed in each church mailbox.  Later in the week a hard copy will be placed in the mailbox of a household that does not have email and a number of copies will also be left on the foyer table for those who prefer a hard copy.

Congregational Meeting Description:

Please note the following points regarding the purpose of the congregational meeting:

  • Everyone’s opinion is valuable - we want to hear your ideas and concerns
  • According to the CRC Church Order – motions are made only for what is on the agenda.

  • Discussion, suggestions, and motions at a Congregational meeting are non-binding to Council, but are all important for Council’s consideration and action for the coming year.
