On Congregationalism: The Process of Revising.

At our Membership Meeting on Wednesday, we’ll be reviewing a proposed revision to our current bylaws.  This past fall, our Board and our Membership Officers began working on a bylaws revision for our church.  We’ve been working together on this for five months.

Early this fall I met with our lawyer to go over our bylaws.  It’s always good to check with a lawyer on legal documents!  He suggested many changes, which we have incorporated into our new proposed bylaws.  And these changes strengthen our congregational roots. Our lawyer is a staunch Congregationalist!

The rest of the changes came from suggestions from our Board and our Membership Officers.  These new proposed bylaws are the result of some five months work.  It was tedious but necessary work.  In the next post I’ll highlight several of the proposed changes.
