Special Congregational Meeting

March 12 11:45 am

The Bethel Church Council has called for a special congregational meeting to be held simultaneously in-person and virtually on Sunday, March 12, 2023 @ 11:45am in the Bethel sanctuary.

The sole purpose of this hybrid meeting is to give you the opportunity to vote on Continuing Resolutions 2010-02 and 2010-3 with the ballot to appear as follows:

□ I vote to KEEP Continuing Resolution 2010-02 and Continuing Resolution 2010-03 of Bethel Lutheran Church, Rochester, MN.

□ I vote to DISSOLVE Continuing Resolution 2010-02 and Continuing Resolution 2010-03 of Bethel Lutheran Church, Rochester, MN.

On Thursday, Feb. 16th, we mailed a letter to members of the congregation with a complete explanation of the meeting and the vote (to access the letter, please visit bit.ly/congregational-letter-feb2023).
