From the Executive Board
Bob Kottkamp has announced that he will not stand for reelection to the office
of Church President at the coming Annual Meeting in November.
The Board asks that members of the congregation give serious consideration
either to volunteering for the post or nominating others whom the Board might encourage.
Bob is open to discussing the responsibilities of office with anyone including those
potentially interested in the position and those wanting more information as part of
nominating others. He does not believe it incumbent upon him to find a person to fill the position.
Annual Congregational Meeting, Sunday, November 13
At our Annual Congregational Meeting following the service of worship on November 13, there will be a vote on parts of the Bylaws. The Bylaws requires that warning be given for two Sundays prior to a vote on Bylaw changes. This announcement constitutes the second warning. The first warning was sent to members via email on Sunday,
For those interested in specifics, the proposed text will be found in the Annual Meeting Reports Package you will receive for the meeting.
There are two areas of change.
First, a new office of Vice President is created.
Second, there are changes in the articles on calling a new pastor, specifically the make-up of the Pastoral Search Committee and the formal preparation and status to become a pastor.
I want to have these changes made before I step down so that a new President will not confront what can be an intimidating process early on.
There will be a luncheon to accompany the Meeting. Please come and participate.
Yours in faith,
