On Sunday, August 14 at 10:15 AM, you are invited to an informational congregational meeting* between services in the sanctuary to learn about proposed changes to the Hillcrest bylaws.  

Then later on Sunday, November 20you are invited to a brief congregational meeting* in the sanctuary which will include a member vote on proposed changes to the Hillcrest bylaws. 

Changes to the constitution and bylaws are being proposed by a committee commissioned by the Hillcrest Governance Board. The committee is comprised of Mindy Vaughn, Rick Davis, and Doug Liljegren, with input from the Hillcrest Governance Board, the Covenant and reflects input from other ECC congregations.

The proposed changes will:
  • improve the consistency in wording from the constitution to the bylaws
  • adopt the phrase of Lead Pastor vs. Senior Pastor
  • clarify the member process and reflect new classifications including Non-Member Friend and Inactive Member

The Hillcrest Governance Board has unanimously accepted the committee's recommendations and we plan to make an advance copy of the proposed bylaw changes available soon. All are welcome for both meetings. Only members will vote. Please contact Mindy Vaughn at mindyvaughn@yahoo.com if you have questions.
 
Serving together in His name,

Hillcrest Governance Board
