At our Business Meeting and Potluck Dinner on April 24 at 5pm, the Leadership Team will be making the following motion to amend our Constitution & Bylaws:


Motion : To create and maintain a comprehensive Policy and Procedures Manual.


Locations of changes & explanation:

  • Page 16, lines 7-12 – This establishes the creation, parameters, and maintenance of a comprehensive Policy and Procedures Manual. The reasons for the Manual are: (1) to bring together all church policies and procedures in one manual or document; and (2) to make it easier to adjust policies and procedures in the future, rather than having to make a change to the bylaws. As a general principle, it is best for specific procedures to be in a document referenced by the bylaws rather than in the bylaws themselves.
  • Page 17, lines 7-9 – The Finance Committee will recommend to the church financial policies and procedures for inclusion in the Manual.
  • Page 17, lines 14-15 – All specific financial procedures are being moved to the Manual.
  • Page 17, lines 32-34 – The Nominating Committee will recommend to the church nominating policies and procedures for inclusion in the Manual.
  • Page 19, lines 6-8 – The Personnel Committee will recommend to the church personnel policies and procedures for inclusion in the Manual.
