As we begin this new year, we want to invite you to join us in reflecting and celebrating all that we have to REJOICE, REIMAGINE, and RENEW as people of God in 2021. We look forward to you joining us for our Annual Meeting on January 31, 2021 at 9:30 am as we vote for open Congregation Council positions, the approval of the 2021 Budget, and for the first of two votes for the approval of our Constitution.

In order to ensure everyone’s health and safety during this pandemic, this meeting will take place on Zoom. You can join the Zoom meeting online at this link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82180282461 or by calling 312-626-6799 and entering Meeting ID 821 8028 2461. Those who join the meeting live will vote during the meeting on the questions in the above sample ballots.
If you would like to join via phone but feel you may be unable to due to financial barriers, please call the church office and we will assist you in being able to join. If you are not able to join the meeting live due to work obligations or technology barriers, please contact the church office to be able to cast your votes. Only votes received prior to the Annual Meeting will be counted in the Annual Meeting vote.
Due to the virtual nature of this meeting and the barrier that this presents for all being able to join, any motions brought up in the meeting will be tabled for a vote at a future meeting. In order to approve the Constitution, it must be voted on twice by the congregation. Therefore, we will have a second meeting sometime in March and along with the second vote on the Constitution, we will vote on any motions brought forth in the Annual Meeting.
We continue to appreciate your patience as we navigate these challenging circumstances and work to ensure that all can continue to participate in the life of the church. Please contact Caleb with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to having you join us as we celebrate this past year and look forward to the future of our congregation in 2021 and beyond!
