Notice (80387-LC-¶2536)

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.)

Rationale

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.
