Congregation meeting on September 8

08.21.19 | Church News | by Grace Church

    The September 8 congregation meeting includes votes on changes to the constitution and bylaws.

    There will be a regular meeting of the congregation on Sunday, September 8, at 12:15 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. The meeting agenda will include a second vote on proposed revisions to the congregation’s constitution. Changes to the constitution require a two-thirds vote at two consecutive meetings of the congregation; these changes were approved for the first time at the meeting on June 2. There will also be a vote on changes to the bylaws; bylaw changes require the approval of a simple majority at one meeting of the congregation.

    The changes were developed by a task force that included congregation president Kim Kernodle, Dan Lehmann, Al Swanson, Kristin Vogen, and Pastor Lyle. After a thorough discussion Church Council approved the changes in May and recommended the revisions to the congregation. Members of the revision task force will be available during the Church and School Picnic on August 25 to answer questions.
