I pray this finds you festive and enjoying the beauty of the season. I wanted to bring to you a few logistics as we prepare for the end of the year.
We have our annual business meeting scheduled January 21st in the Buena Vista campus at 1:30 p.m. This meeting is required by our constitution and by-laws. During this meeting the pastoral staff will report on their respective campuses and ministries, we will elect Deacons and affirm Elders. As per our constitution, any items of discussion must be submitted in writing no later than January 2nd.
Also, all deacon nominations must be submitted no later than December 31st. You might ask who can nominate Deacons - that is a great question. All members of Cornerstone Church can nominate a Deacon to the nominating committee. A deacon must fulfill the biblical standards outlined in I Timothy 3 and have been a member of Cornerstone for one year. We will be electing 3 new Deacons for our Salida campus in addition to vacant spots in our Leadville and Buena Vista campuses.
Our agenda with approved nominees will be submitted the week of January 8th and be announced January 8th and 14th.
This meeting is a great time to reflect on what the Father has done and anticipate as a family what he will do. I look forward to all of you being there. If you are unsure if you are a member or what that might entail please contact your local campus pastor and get the full details.
