Participation in Church Governance Activities

Approved by the Board of Directors 11-11-97;
Amended by the Board of Directors 11-8-2005

Church activities generally are open to Church members and non-members alike. However, activities relating to Church governance are limited to Church members. This includes congregational business meetings, meetings of the Board and its subcommittees, and meetings of the Nominating, Finance, Personnel and Stewardship Committees. Non-members may attend congregational business meetings as observers, but may not vote and may participate in the discussions only with specific approval of the presiding officer.
