Virtual Congregational Meeting

The revised bylaws our congregation passed in July 2019 require that we host three (3) congregational meetings per year for our members.  The onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic prevented our first congregational meeting of 2020. 

The COVID-19 global pandemic still prevents us from safely hosting an in-person congregational meeting, however we have devised a way to conduct our business virtually.  The following steps will help you prepare for our first Virtual Congregational Meeting!

Step 1: Pick up the Proposed Amendments to be addressed during the upcoming Virtual Congregational Meeting.  Proposed Amendments will be distributed on Saturday, September 12, 2020 from 2pm – 6pm.

Step 2: At the time you sign for your copy of the Proposed Amendments, identify your intention to vote electronically using a computer/tablet/smartphone or in-person at the church.

Step 3:  Register for the Virtual Town Hall Meeting held via Zoom on Wednesday, September 16th at 6:30pm to ask questions about the Proposed Amendments.  (ENDED)
Please note: These proceedings are for Light of the World members only.  Active membership will be verified before receiving the Zoom link.
