FPC Town Hall Meeting Tonight at 7:00pm

TOWN HALL MEETING

TONIGHT!!! January 11th at 7:00pm in Fellowship Hall

We will gather together in Fellowship Hall to talk about the next step with Camp McCullough. At our last meeting, we discussed sharing the management of Camp with a few other partner churches. The next step in this process involves a ‘Letter of Intent’ that would guide a potential lease agreement with the partner churches. We wanted give our congregation a chance to see a draft of this letter and give feedback or ask questions.  A few weeks after the Town Hall Meeting, we would like to call a Congregational Meeting to approve the final Letter of Intent.  

 



Draft Camp Letter of Intent for Town Hall

camp

Members of FPC are encouraged to attend the Town Hall on January 11 @ 7:00 pm to provide input and ask questions about the draft Letter of Intent for creating a new structure to manage the facilities at our Camp McCullough. After getting input at the Town Hall, Session will review the input and create a final draft of the Letter of Intent for approval by a vote of the congregation at a congregational meeting to be scheduled for later in January or February. Download the draft Letter of Intent to review it before the Town Hall.
