2016 Congregational Meeting

Congregation Meeting WEB

Per Trinity’s Constitution: Article XI: Amendments: B
“The Board of Elders shall periodically review this constitution and recommend amendment(s) to the congregation in written form two weeks prior to a congregational meeting. A three-quarter-majority vote of the votes cast at the congregational meeting is necessary to pass any amendment.”

The Board of Elders at Trinity would like to take this opportunity and propose amendments to our constitution. The first amendment proposal is due to a recent United States Supreme Court ruling on marriage. The Christian Lawyers’ Association has advised churches to make appropriate changes to their constitutions to clarify a biblical definition of marriage. The second proposed change to our constitution is clerical in nature. Our pastoral search consultant provided us with a constitutional review by one of their experts in the field. This process found no ‘necessary’ changes but had a number of clarifications either with words or phrases.

So, with these two opportunities, the elders have done their due diligence and will present the proposed changes for a Trinity member vote. There will also be a Senior Pastor search update. All members are encouraged to attend.

Sunday, April 10
4:00-5:00 pm

Childcare (age 4 and under) is available by contacting Julie Ross by email jross@trinityonline.org or x130.
