Congregational Meeting

Here you will find all the information that you need for the congregational meeting.

How to Participate

  1. Attend worship in-person. Directly after worship on Sunday, Council President Dave Nelsen will call the meeting to order. So, stay in your seats, stay 6 feet apart and the meeting will be underway. If you have something to say, please set up to the microphones that are set up so that everyone joining us online can hear you as well.
  2. Video-conference via Zoom. By connecting via Zoom, you will be a part of a discussion that has a moderator that will share any questions, comments, or concerns you might have with the assembly. The link to the Zoom code was emailed out to you on Friday (11/13), so check your emal for the code. If you do not find it, please contact the church office (office@relc.org).
  3. Phone in via Zoom. You can use your cell phone to attend the zoom meeting. Instructions on how to do this were included in your packets sent through the mail and can be found online here: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362663-Joining-a-meeting-by-phone 

How the Meeting Works

Just like any congregational meeting, there is an agenda, will be motions, and voting. There will be a PowerPoint slide deck that Council will use to run the meeting, you can find a link to that in the materials portion of this web page.

You will have received a ballot in the mailing packet, please bring that with you to in-person or drop it off before the meeting. If there are no motions from the floor, we will not need to use the paper ballots and can call for a voice vote. But please bring the paper ballot just in case.
