Congregational Annual Meeting reminder

Dear Friends,

It was wonderful to see so many people come to hear Pastor Dan Heath preach Sunday and join for a question and answer period with him.  Hopefully, you gained valuable information to help you make the decision on whether or not to vote to call Pastor Dan.

We currently have our annual meeting scheduled for Sunday, June 11, after the 10:00 a.m. service.  At the annual meeting we will share reports from Committees, vote for President, Treasurer and Council Committee members, and vote on a recommended amendment to clarify Section C11.03 of the Constitution.  This amendment was sent earlier this month and is printed below as well.  We will also convene a Call meeting immediately following the annual meeting to vote on two items:  1)  Do we call Pastor Dan Heath to serve at Shepherd of the Valley; and, if the answer is yes, 2) We will vote on the salary and benefits package for Pastor Dan.

While the annual meeting was sufficiently exciting that I hope you were all planning to attend, the addition of a meeting to vote for Call makes the morning even more important.   Please plan to join us for the 10:00 service on Sunday, June 11, and stay for both meetings.

Yours in Christ,
Linnea Harmon
Council President

Recommended change to Constitution:
C11.03  No officer shall hold more than one office at a time.  No elected officer shall be eligible to serve consecutive terms in the same office, except the treasurer who will be eligible to serve two consecutive terms.

As a reminder, this change simply adds the word "consecutive" to clarify the intent of the section.
