Materials for Organization

“It’s a real big deal!” Pastor Nick summed up our fast approaching Organization Sunday perfectly—it is a real big deal. On Sunday, June 5, Abiding Grace will change status from a “synodically authorized worship community” to a full congregation of the ELCA. 

We have two meetings scheduled in May to get ready for June 5. On Sunday May 22, we will hold a Congregational Meeting immediately after the service. With Rev. Stephen C. Kanouse, Director for Evangelical Mission, Northern Texas-Northern Louisiana Synod, ELCA, appointed by the Bishop presiding, we will pass the needed resolutions to organize as a congregation, approve our Congregational Constitution and elect a Congregational Council and officers. 

The prior Sunday, May 15, we will hold a forum during the Sunday School hour (9:30) to go over the all the material with ample time for questions and discussion. Here is the material (which was previously sent by email to all members):
If you have any questions, please speak with Pastor Nick or any member of Council: Kenn Mingus, Tim Draney, Kim Saunders, Nolan Clemens, Carl Christensen, Don Duval, Kim Haggerty, Phil Hart, Susie Henning, Patti Langsdale, John Nelson, Donn Renwick and Jeff Trang.
