IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE ANNUAL MEETING, VOTING & BALLOTS:
We have received information from the Synod in regards to the annual meetings and voting. Our constitution does not allow voting by proxy or by absentee ballot. The Synod has approved a few ways for members to vote who do not attend the meeting. FLC Council has approved the following voting procedure:
- Pastor has agreed to have drive thru communion from 8-9 am on January 17.
- At this time, (8-9 am) you may drop off your ballot with Pastor if you do not plan to attend the meeting at 10 am. These ballots will be added to the final vote.
- We cannot accept any mailed in ballots.
- We cannot accept a ballot for a voting member who is not in the car. Example: A family of 2 and only one comes to drive thru with 2 votes the one vote will not count.
- A member of council will be present to accept the votes at that time.
This will be the procedure for the 2021 annual meeting on January 17 only.
Annual Reports & Ballots will be e-mailed/mailed on January 8 to give you time to read them over.
JANUARY IS LAUNDRY SUPPLIES MONTH for the Ministry Center. Examples would be detergent, fabric softener, dryer sheets, bleach, stain remover, etc. Thank you!
