ONLINE MEETING CENTER
We thank you for your time during our first virtual business meeting. The 26th Biennial Business Session will be held on Saturday, August 15, 2020. The meeting will begin at 12 pm (EST) and conclude around 3 pm (EST).
We invite you to join us 15 minutes before the meeting starts.
At the virtual Biennial Business Session, we will want to:
Install new Officers;
Install new At-Large Members;
Receive the Strategic Plan and Vision Statement;
Approve the proposed Amendments to the Articles of Operation;
Receive the Advisory Committee report;
Receive the Nominating Committee report;
and receive the Time & Place Committee report.
As we explore this new way of being “together” for our meeting, we have prepared a few meeting protocols and recommendations to help us run the meeting smoothly.
During our time together, we will have Communion. We would like to welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us. We invite you to prepare some bread (or crackers) of any kind. Let it be something you alone or you with others in your house may break and share. Prepare a cup or cups of juice - perhaps grape or cranberry. Set these elements aside, where you will gather to attend the virtual business session. Perhaps you want to put them on a lovely cloth or fabric that reminds you of a special time or a person deeply connected with you in the communion of saints. Perhaps you will light a candle or place a flower or plant beside the bread and the cup. May we all come, as one, and partake of the Lord's Table. Thank you in advance for your preparations.
We look forward to welcoming each of you.
