Amend ¶ No. 2536
Notice and Authorization—Prior to the purchase by an unincorporated local church of any real estate, a resolution authorizing such action shall be passed at a meeting of the charge conference by a majority vote of its members present and voting at a regular meeting or a special meeting of the charge conference called for that purpose; provided, however, that not less than ten days' notice of such meeting and the proposed action shall have been given from the pulpit
, or and in the weekly bulletin, newsletter or electronic notice of the church; and provided further, that written consent to such action shall be given by the pastor and the district superintendent. (See ¶ 2543.)
This change allows for the use of electronic notice for churches that use e-mail or web sites to notify their members of official actions.
