Congregational Meeting Minutes

There was a congregational meeting following morning worship on March 2, 2008. Twenty of twenty-three confessing members in good standing were present.

  1. Mr Callahan opened with prayer and introduced the meeting agenda.
  2. Mr Wattel introduced the 2007 financial statement and 2008 budget. There were no questions raised by the congregation concerning the 2007 statement. The budget prompted few questions and no opposition.
  3. Mr Wattel talked about the upcoming Family Camp (June 23-26). A registration form was distributed; deposit and registration are due to Langley church by March 23 (full payment by May 11).
  4. Mr Wattel sought informal counsel from the congregation regarding his intention to join the Rotary Club, with the hope of becoming involved in diaconal work through its community service.
  5. Mr Gallant explained council's continued consideration of the liturgy, and announced the introduction of kneeling for confession of sin, in line with biblical whole-body responses in worship.
  6. Congregation voted for extension of officebearer terms. According to our Constitution, this term is for five years. Mr Callahan appointed Mr Jay Woodford and Mr Mike Joslin to count the ballots. Mr Jamie Soles led the congregation in song while the ballots were counted. Mr Woodford reported that all council member terms had been extended by unanimous consent of the congregation. It was moved by Dean Barendregt, seconded by Jamie Soles and approved unanimously by the congregation that the ballots be destroyed.
  7. Mr Plante closed in prayer.
