Church officer nominations
The Nominating Committee has announced a slate of officers for the Class of 2027. This year begins our gradual transition toward a Session of 18 elders. The change, announced after Session approval last June, will be implemented over three years. This year our slate is comprised of 6 members to be considered as Elders for a three-year term, and one nominee to serve a five-year term as Church Trustee. Nominees are: Nancy Abrams, Marshall Brown, Leigh Haley Jones, Graham Farless, Lorie Jones, and Andrew Spainhour as elder, and Tom Nelson as trustee for the L. Richardson Trust. Read more about them here. A congregational meeting will be held before the 11 am service on Sunday, March 3, to consider the slate. Rejoice! worshippers are encouraged to attend and may leave after the meeting.
In Memory of Rev. Dolly Jacobs: A fund for education and well-being has been set up for Dolly’s daughters, Sydney and CeCe. Make checks payable to Stifel Investment Services. This must be written on the memo line: ½ to Sydney Hunt, 4733; ½ to Cornelia Hunt, 9315. You can mail checks directly to Stifel at 629 Green Valley Road, Suite 211, Greensboro, NC 27408 or send them to the church/leave at the reception desk and we will forward. Note: Do not make checks payable to the church; because of accounting rules we are unable to serve as a pass-through.
