Annual Meeting of the Congregation
Sunday, February 28
The Annual Meeting of the Congregation will be held Sunday, February 28, in the Sanctuary, immediately following worship. At the meeting the congregation will elect Elders, Deacons, and at-large representatives to the Nominating Committee of the congregation for 2016; act on terms of call for installed pastors; and vote on the recommended change to the Code of Regulations, outlined below.
Children’s Choirs and Bell Choirs will rehearse as usual.
The Annual Report is available on our website, and printed copies will be available in the literature racks on Sunday, February 28.
Over the past two years, our Board of Deacons has both expanded their
existing ministries and developed new ones. To meet this greater need, the Session approved a proposal to change the number of Deacons on the Board from twelve to eighteen. This requires that Westminster’s by-laws be amended so that Article IV, Section 5 reads:
The Board of Deacons shall consist of eighteen Deacons divided into three classes of six Deacons. Each class shall hold office for three years.
If this amendment is approved, seven Deacons will be elected at that meeting. To ensure an orderly transition, one Deacon will be elected to a one-year term; another to a two-year term, and five to a regular three-year term.
