Church Annual Meeting – October 28th, 2018
Dear Church Members, Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ! The CBCGL Church Council cordially invites you to attend the upcoming Annual Congregational Meeting at 1:30PM‑3:30PM on October 28, in the first floor sanctuary.

Thanks be to God, as he faithfully watches over our church and each family in our daily lives, and continues to build us together into a dwelling place for God by his Spirit (Ephesians 2:22). Let us come together in the Annual Meeting to review the church ministry progress, count God’s blessings, and look ahead to next year’s objectives. We will introduce new members, elect new deacons, review objectives and present reports from each congregation and ministry. We will also provide updates from the Finance, Missions, and the Building Committee. We reserved 30 minutes of Q&A to hear your questions and concerns.

The elders Raymond Xie, Rick Shih, Ming Chiang and Sean Lee and the deacons Paul Fleming, Rick He, Thomas Chen and David Wong will complete their terms at the end of 2018. We thank the Lord for their faithful service. The Council has unanimously approved the candidates for the new elders and deacons recommended by the Nominating Committee. The four elder candidates are Raymond Xie, Rick Shih, Ming Chiang, and Jeremy Wu. The four deacon candidates are Thomas Chen, Charles Wang, Joe Chen, and Alan Lam. Their personal and ministry profiles have been posted on the display boards in the first floor fellowship hall. Please remember these candidates in your prayer as they prepare to serve at our church.

The church council also approved the promotion of Pastor Nathan from Assistant Pastor to Associate Pastor. According to the CBCGL bylaws, this position change requires congregation approval by two-third of votes. The voting will take place during the annual meeting.

The Church Council would like to remind you that participation in the Annual Congregational Meeting is a church member’s privilege and responsibility, and you are requested to make every effort to attend the meeting. If, for some reason, you are unable to vote in the congregational meeting, please obtain your absentee ballot from office assistant sister Rita Wang between 10/21 (Sun) ~ 10/26 (Fri), and cast the ballot in the ballot box in the church office in the presence of any member of the church Council no later than noon time on 10/27 (Sat).

May God richly bless you and your family! Serving Him in the Harvest Field together,
Shalom,

The CBCGL Council
