A congregational meeting will be held at the 11am worship service on Sunday, January 22. The Nominating Committee (Chair: Anne Vann; Vice-chair: Bonnie Derr; Diaconate Representative: Louise Holland) will deliver its slate of candidates for four at-large members (Walt Beckwith, Laurel Trantham, Fritz Simonson, and Paul Garcia) to the 2017 Nominating Committee during this meeting.
A second meeting will be held at the 11am service on Sunday, January 29, to elect candidates to the committee. Nominations may be made from the floor at either meeting. Once elected, the 2017 Nominating Committee will gather nominations and discern who is called to serve next as elders and deacons. If you feel called to serve as an elder or a deacon, please know you are invited to submit your own name for consideration.
You may submit nominations to the box on Barb Schmidt’s desk in the Mission Center, to any member of the Nominating Committee, or to firstname.lastname@example.org before Sunday, February 26. Please do not ask those you nominate about their willingness to serve; the Nominating Committee will do that at the appropriate time.
