Election of Church Officers:
Presbyterian Church Officers must be elected by the people of the congregation before they are ordained and installed. We will hear the report of the Congregational Nominating Committee with their nominations for Elder, Deacon and for Nominating Committee Members at Large, and receive any nominations from the floor (communicated in writing to the Nominating Committee one week in advance).
Nominees are then invited to recuse themselves from the room. Then we have discussion: people are allowed to speak once to the motion and can only speak again after all others who wish to speak have done so. Vote is by written ballot.
