Dear Members of Presbytery:
As the “Blizzard of ‘15” fast approaches, our officers and staff, in consultation with our host Pastor, the Rev. Bert Watkins, have decided to postpone our Stated Meeting, for one week, until Tuesday, February 3rd, at 5:00 P.M., at the First Presbyterian Church of Ridgewood.
We are grateful to our hosts for their willingness to accommodate this change of plans!
We will hold an abbreviated Meeting, as follows:
- Convene promptly at 5:00 P.M.
- First order of business – Suspend (by a 2/3-majority vote) the Standing Rules, Article I, Section 1, which specifies that the Stated Meeting is to be held on the 4th Tuesday of January.
- During the “Opening Business,” the Stated Clerk will propose an amended Agenda, which essentially covers the first 1 ½ hours of business – i.e. through the Report of the Presbytery Council, Board of Trustees, and the discussion about the Budget deficit – ending just before CAMEOS.
- Adjourn at 6:30 P.M., without Dinner, and postpone Worship and the “enrichment” portion until the March Stated Meeting.
[NOTE: the Presbytery Council will hold its Regular February Meeting, at 7:00 P.M., immediately following the Presbytery Meeting on February 3rd, at the Presbytery Office in Rochelle Park. Supper will be ordered in for Council members.]
Thank you all for your cooperation in this important change of plans!
Please be safe, and stay well!
