Call for Special Meeting, June 2, 2015

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Please find attached a Call for a Special Meeting to discuss the Report on the Sale of Properties, which was made available online for members of the Presbytery.  Below is the link for the proposed agenda for the meeting.  The meeting is to be held on Tuesday, June 2, 2015, at 5:00 P.M.

I am grateful to our friends at the First Presbyterian Church of Maywood for offering to host this Special Meeting.  The Rev. Sam Weddington advises that ample parking is available on the streets around the church, but urges us to be courteous to the neighbors, taking care not to obstruct driveways.  There is also a public parking lot located behind the Maywood Public Library located down the street at 459 Maywood Avenue.

This meeting provides an opportunity to ask questions of members of the review team, the Board of Trustees, and the Presbytery Council, and for commissioners and members to offer their perspectives and listen to one another.  In accordance with the Standing Rules, no other business will be in order at this Special Meeting.

Please join us for this gathering as we seek faithfully to live as the body of Christ together.

Peace,

Rev. David A. Baer, Acting Stated Clerk
