Congregational Meeting Scheduled for Feb. 26

There will be a congregational meeting immediately after worship February 26 to consider a proposed amendment to the Constitution and By-Laws of Bethany Christian Church.

While the by-laws provide for the election of honorary elders and deacons who have served with honor and dignity but no longer serve, there is no such provision for honoring the service of those who are not elders or deacons.

Therefore, the board proposes an amendment to the by-laws that would allow the election of officers emeritus, and recommends that Clara Jean Ensley, who served devotedly as church clerk for 40 years be the first to be so honored.

For the text of the proposed amendment and election pursuant to its passage, follow the link below.
