In the 2008 year, the Session of Bethel has been made aware of a number of issues that affect the Constitution of the Church. In just the last month, we have had many blessed opportunities to meet each Member of the Congregation and to explain what the changes were, as well as provide an opportunity to gather feedback and suggestions.
Since the open forum held on the 28th of August, Session has met on a number of occasions to deliberate and consider all the feedback acquired. We Praise and thank the Lord for His sustaining grace and wisdom in helping us complete this process.
As presented, today is the date in which we present our final amendments to the constitution. We thank the Members of the Church who have provided constructive feedback and for taking the time to review the documents.
You can download the final, amended Constitution as well as Session’s response to the feedback using the links below.
Please continue to pray for the wisdom and for the unity and peace of the Church as we prayerfully consider these changes. Session is planning to hold an ECM on the 9th of October to adopt the proposed amended constitution. May the Lord continue to bless us as we seek to do this to the Praise and Glory of His Name.
