Salem Town Hall Meeting
When: August 27
Time: 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
All are invited to a Town Hall Meeting regarding the recent Evangelical Covenant Church Annual Meeting. At our denominational Annual Meeting, First Covenant Church Minneapolis was removed from membership in the ECC and the ordination credentials of two Covenant pastors were revoked. These decisions primarily revolved around issues of human sexuality and church governance.
There is a lot of information and misinformation, as well as a variety of opinions and emotions surrounding these decisions. This Town Hall Meeting will be an opportunity for information to be presented and to answer questions about what took place and the issues that were addressed. Salem’s ECC Annual Meeting delegates will be available to speak about their experience. However, there will be limitations to what can be shared as the discussion and vote took place in an executive session, which is confidential.
While this meeting will be primarily informational, we will also collect suggestions regarding outstanding questions and issues that Salem members may want to address and/or study further at subsequent gatherings.
