Dear Members of Concord-St. Andrews Church,
Every year the local church holds a Charge Conference at which leaders are elected, reports are given, and the pastor's salary is set. Voting members of the Charge Conference are the officers of the church council.
This year however, the Baltimore Washington Conference has decided that all churches will hold a "Church Conference."
This option is covered under paragraph 248 of the United Methodist Discipline, which states, To encourage broader participation by members of the church, the charge conference may be convened as the church conference, extending the vote to all professing members of the local church present at such meetings. The church conference shall be authorized by the district superintendent. It may be called at the discretion of the district superintendent....
Our Church Conference is Scheduled for October 10, 2017, at 7pm and will be held at:
Located at: 8300 Old Georgetown Rd., Bethesda MD.
It is anticipated that the Church Conference will be approximately an hour and a half.
There will be 3 other churches present for their Church Conferences as well:
- Cabin John UMC
- Chevy Chase UMC
- St Paul-Kensington UMC
What This Means:
- All members of Concord-St. Andrews may vote; this includes youth who are members.
- Only the members of our church will vote on Concord-St. Andrews items of business.
