        The Board of Deacons is reviewing our congregation’s constitution to ascertain if there is anything that should be changed, deleted or added.  We ask that anyone who has an interest in this procedure to reread our constitution to see if there is any wording which you do not understand.  We especially ask all boards and committees to examine the section(s) that apply to your assigned tasks.  Please make written notes about what you find and your suggestions.  Give these to the pastor, church office, or any deacon.  We are examining each section of the document at our regular board meetings.  Place your name on your submission so if we have any questions for clarification we know who to contact.

        There are copies of the constitution on the table in the back of the sanctuary or you may obtain one in the church office.
