On Sunday, February 5, 2017, the Annual Meeting approved revisions to the by-laws and constitution that deal with membership. These changes moderate the tone of the old document that reflected a tone of judgement in welcoming folks and in moving folks from active to inactive status.
A concern was expressed that this change might lead to kicking aging people out of the church. This change makes it LESS likely that people will be moved from active to inactive. Click here to download a copy of the approved change.
