Annual Congregational Meeting
Join us for our annual meeting via zoom when we gather to celebrate our 5th principle, our democratic freedom as a community, and vote on new board members, our budget for the coming year, and a change to our bylaws.
As a church community governed by the congregation, this meeting is your chance to exercise your vote. If you are a member, please join us. Children will attend their own Children’s Annual Meeting with Gem in their Sunday zoom room.
Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 11:15am after worship via Zoom.
