Home > News & Events > Annual Meeting

Annual Meeting – January 29 Our Annual Congregational Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, January 29, following morning worship. We will elect new Church Council members, the 2017 Nominating Team, Delegates to Lutherhaven, The Village at Orchard Ridge corporation meetings, and to the LCMC NW District and International Gatherings. We will also adopt our congregation’s Ministry Plan (budget), and conduct other necessary business. Please mark your calendar so you can be present for this important meeting!

For Congregational Notice & Consideration This recommended change by the council will be brought to the Annual Congregational Meeting, Jan 29, to be voted on by the congregation. Under our current Bylaws, in 2017 our current treasurer, Valerie Christiansen, would no longer be able to serve in that position (BL8.03. “No officer shall hold more than one office at a time. No elected officer shall be eligible to serve more than two consecutive terms in the same office, and having served two consecutive terms shall not be eligible to be elected to the same office for two years.”). It was recommended by council that we change this bylaw to read: “No officer shall hold more than one office at a time. No elected officer, except the treasurer, shall be eligible to serve…” This will allow for the position of treasurer to be held for more than two years by someone who is qualified and willing to do so.
