This upcoming Congregational meeting on June 28, 2020 we are proposing three items that call for a congregational vote. The first two are amendments to our current constitution, and the third is the passing of a budget for the new fiscal year.
Doctrinal Statement – In June 2019 EFCA made a revision to the doctrinal statement replacing the word “premillennial” with “glorious” in describing the second coming of Jesus, thus not necessitating a premillennial position regarding eschatology for ordination. The Elders are recommending that we follow the EFCA in this amendment. In so doing, it was noticed that the constitution has not yet reflected the previous change to the doctrinal statement for the EFCA (2008), which is currently on our website. The Doctrinal Statement that is currently in our constitution is the 1950 Statement of Faith for the EFCA. In light of our current partnership and ongoing desire to affiliate with the EFCA, we are recommending coming up-to-date with our doctrinal statement. View Pastor Craig's presentation on the doctrinal statement changes below.
Fiscal Year Shift - In light of our desire to change our fiscal year from the calendar year to July-June fiscal year, the first motion is the removal of the line regarding our fiscal year (Article VI: Section D). See Below.
New Budget - July 2020 - June 2021
