CHARGE CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

Our annual charge conference meeting will be held on Thursday, October 27, 2016 at 7pm at Salem-Ladue United Methodist Church. Charge Conference is the official, yearly meeting of a local church under the direction of the district superintendent.

Charge conferences are required to sell church property, elect new leaders, and establish a pastoral housing allowance --- things we have already done this year! This final charge conference will affirm the nominations report and pastoral salary, approve the membership audit (including reviewing active/inactive members), and receive the trustee report, staff-parish report, and pastoral continuing education report. It will also include a time of intentional learning.

Voting members of the charge conference are the people elected to Leadership Council. All of our church meetings (except for those dealing with personnel matters) are open meetings, so all are welcome to observe.
