Church Bylaws Almost Ready For Congregational Approval

The Steering Committee and Provisional Session are finishing the church bylaws and anticipate having this document available for congregational review on September 4. It will be posted on the website, and a quantity of paper copies will be available on September 4. Any comments or corrections you wish to make are due to Billy Barron <wlbarronsr@gmail.com>; 420-8112, by September 18. If there are no changes, this document will be presented to the congregation for adoption at a congregational meeting following worship on September 18. If there are comments/changes proposed by the congregation, the Bylaws will be finalized at the monthly Steering Committee/Provisional Session meeting on September 19. This revised final document will be presented in a congregational meeting on October 4 for a vote to adopt.

This will be a significant step forward in the process of our organization as a regular church.
