At the September membership meeting, the Executive Board put forth some suggested amendments to the bylaws concerning applications for membership in our church. The EB's motion was designed to simply open up a conversation about the application process and requirements and ask members to gather a couple of times before the membership meeting in January to discuss the suggested changes. A first discussion group gathered on November 5th to share concerns, pros and cons, and various comments about the proposed changes. You can find the report from that discussion group here . Another session for discussions will be hosted on Tuesday, December 5th at 7 pm in the upper Sunday School room. All members are urged to come and share their thoughts and prayers about the proposed amendments.
