Meeting Agenda
The Senior Minister Search Committee had its first meeting on JUN 27. Click below to read the public minutes of that meeting.

JUN 19

On JUN 5, the Board of Elders voted to approve three Elders (in addition to David Rix, the Moderator) to be Elder-representatives on the Senior Minister Search Committee, as governed by the bylaws. They also voted to approve that three congregants nominated by David Rix be brought to the Leadership Council for a vote. David called the Leadership Council to meet on WED JUN 19. At that meeting, the Leadership Council voted to approve the Candidates, thus providing the the required three or more members appointed by the Council and forming the new Senior Minister Search Committee.

The Search Committee will schedule and have their first meeting in the coming weeks. First to be discussed is the internal organization, including the method for review of minister-candidates provided by Richard Kidd. David has been in contact with Richard and he has begun searching for new candidates to provide to the Search Committee. The previous committee's requirements have been focused, but the (PDF) church profile is still relevant and in use, and you may refer candidates as well.

MAY 31

On MAY 31, the Board of Elders held a Q&A session, to inform the congregation about developments in the search process. Many of you asked questions online. You can now access answers to those questions on the same page. If you have additional questions, please send them to Elizabeth Lohnes, Director of Communications, and she will see to it that they get answered.
