Today, Sept. 27, church members have the chance to vote for our Elder Body’s proposal regarding important changes to our leadership structure here at the Creek. All members ages 16 and up are eligible to vote. We outlined this proposal at a family meeting on Sept. 13, and released a video on our website explaining these changes as well. We hope you have been informed and praying about this opportunity.
There are two options for voting:
- First, you can vote by filling out a paper ballot and placing it in the offering baskets or in the drop box. Paper ballots are available at the welcome desk.
- Second, you may also vote by text message. To vote by text, send a text message to 919-263-8001 and include ALL of the following:
- FIRST and LAST NAME
- The word YES to affirm the proposal, or NO to reject the proposal
Text votes will only be received from 9am to 6pm today, Sept. 27. All votes, both paper and text, will be verified and hand-counted by the Creek’s admin team.
Family Prayer Meeting TONIGHT on the lower field and virtual at 6 pm.
