A time of worship, to include our Annual Business Meeting is currently planned to be held at Midland Evangelical Free Church on Sunday, June 7, at 5:30 pm.
In addition to our worship time, the agenda will include approval of the minutes of our December business meeting, voting in new members, voting on a second term for three elders, and voting on the FY 2020-21 budget.
Information packets were emailed to members on Friday, May 22. If you would like a hard copy of the information packet, please e-mail Melanie Draves or contact the church office at 989.631.4411. In the event the June 7 event cannot be held due to a lack of quorum, the alternative date will be Sunday, June 21, at 5:30 pm.
Because of the current state orders limiting the size of indoor, in-person gatherings, and to respect continuing social distancing and health and safety requirements, our intention, subject to applicable orders and regulations at that time, is for this event to be conducted in a "drive in" style (with attendees staying in their cars) in our church parking lot.
The event will be broadcast by an FM receiver, with full Q&A and debate opportunities during the business meeting portion, like any other business meeting. To be able to participate fully in the event, you will need to come in a vehicle with FM receiver capabilities.
We will be conducting the event with careful attention to all applicable social distancing and regulatory requirements and taking as many precautions as we reasonably can to ensure the health and safety of those who are participating.
If you believe you will have difficulty participating under this format, or if you have concerns about being able to participate in a safe manner, please e-mail Melanie Draves or contact the church office at 989.631.4411 so we can attempt to address your concerns or limitations.
If you are unable to attend the Business Meeting portion of the event, you may ask someone to proxy for you and notify the clerk of the proxy. If you must do so, please designate your proxy by following this link.
An attending member may vote proxy for only one absent member. Proxy requests must be submitted in advance of the event, and if submitted electronically no later than 12:00 pm (noon) on Saturday, June 6, 2020 for the June 7 event date (or 12:00 pm (noon) on Saturday, June 20, for the alternative June 21 event date). If you need to establish a proxy for your vote and cannot do so through the link please e-mail Melanie Draves or call the church office at 989.631.4411.
Please Note: Proxies do NOT count towards a quorum, and we must have a quorum (30% of the Regular Membership) present at the event to conduct business.
In light of the current COVID situation, no childcare will be available.
