Congregational Meeting

Sunday, October 22, 2017, 9:55 AM - 10:30 AM

Location: First Presbyterian Church, 1111 5th Ave North, Fort Dodge, IA US 50501

We will be having a Congregational Meeting at 9:55 in the Sanctuary on Sunday, October 22nd.

In addition to voting on our 2018 Deacons, Elders, Nominating Team Members and Foundation Board Members, approval is being sought in our October 22, 2017 Congregational Meeting for deletion of the following language at the end of Paragraph 4 of Article III (“Officers”) of our current corporate by-laws: “; provided, however, that any active Session member serving on such committee or board shall not serve as an officer of such committee or board.” Upon approval, Paragraph 4 will end with a period after “…January 1.” This will ensure that our by-laws are consistent with a ministry team restructuring approved by our Session in 2017 that is scheduled to begin in January of 2018. That restructuring requires, in part, that Session members serve as the chairpersons of the ministry teams for which they are liaisons.
