Message from your council president

Dear Friends,

Next Sunday, June 11, will be an important day for SOV. We will convene our annual meeting right after our 10:00 a.m.service (only one service that Sunday). This meeting will be followed immediately with a second meeting to vote on calling Pastor Dan Heath.

At the annual meeting we will elect our President, Treasurer, and Council Committees. We will also vote on a change to the Constitution. Your Council is recommending this change to Section C11.03 so it more accurately reflects the intention.

The section currently reads:
No officer shall hold more than one office at a time. No elected officer shall be eligible to serve more than one term in the same office, except for the treasurer who will be eligible to serve two terms.

The recommended change would instead read:
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 for the treasurer who will be eligible to serve two consecutive terms.

As you can see, we are seeking to clarify the section by indicating no one can serve consecutive terms in the same office.

Our second meeting will be to vote on the Call Committee's recommendation that we issue a call to Pastor Dan Heath. If that vote is successful, we will also vote on his compensation package.

Although the agendas are brief, as you can see, these are both very important meetings for SOV. Please plan to attend.

Blessings to you,
Linnea Harmon
Council President
