A Special Congregational meeting is being called on May 3, 2015, at noon for the sole purpose of voting on the resolution to call Rev. Kelly Dignan as our settled minister. You must have been a member for 60 days to vote. There will be childcare and a kids’ activity during the meeting.
For those members who cannot attend the meeting (since there is no absentee voting) or for friends who would like to give a statement of support for the resolution, you can send a message to Jim Rowe (email@example.com) by Saturday, May 2. These statements will be compiled for the meeting.
