Selection of pulpit committee: (Amended 8/1995)
The pulpit committee shall be selected by secret ballot during a Sunday Morning Worship Service. This election is to be announced one week prior to the vote.
The pulpit committee shall be composed of 4 members. Church members may nominate up to four persons on this ballot.
The 4 persons receiving the highest number of votes and willing to serve shall be the pulpit committee, providing they have received a majority of at least 51% of the total votes cast.
If, on the first vote, we do not select 4 with over 51% of the vote, a second voting by secret ballot will be taken. This ballot will consist of names from the first ballot who are willing to serve but did not receive the 51% vote needed. This ballot will consist of two more names than the number of vacancies remaining from the first ballot. (Example: If one person is selected by the first balloting, 5 names will be presented, etc.) These names will be presented in the order of those receiving the highest number of votes and willing to serve. Those receiving the highest number of votes from this balloting will fill the remaining vacancies on this committee.
Duties of the Pulpit Committee:
The following is not part of written policy but according to minutes and discussion with previous pulpit committee members has been practice.
