News and Announcements, September 1st

Review And Approval Of The NGC By-Laws

The Steering Committee has released the final draft By-Laws document for comment. You are encouraged to download them here or from a new page on Billy will have a limited number of hard copies available for those without internet access for our worship service this Sunday, September 4 (Derek Wells preaching). If you have comments or objections to anything in the By-Laws, you should communicate them to Billy by writing or email <>; 420-8112 by September 18. We will hear and discuss written comments submitted to Billy by members at an informational meeting following worship on Sept. 18 (Max Bolin preaching; moderated by the Steering Committee).

If there are no comments/objections to the draft, the Provisional Session and Steering Committee will vote final approval at the Sept. 19 Steering Committee meeting. If there are changes to be made, the approval vote on the amended document will be scheduled for October 4. The procedures presented in the draft By-Laws for congregational meetings will govern our meetings.

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