Called Church Conferfence

As many of you know, Cason was approached by a developer and offered 1.4 million dollars to sell our parsonage.  Via a Called Church Conference, the congregation unanimously voted to accept the offer.  At that same meeting, the church created a Parsonage Committee, charged with locating a new property for a parsonage.

The Nominating Committee asked for volunteers to serve on the committee, and after deliberation, along with the Head of Finance and the Head of Trustees, the Nominating Committee picked 6 individuals to serve; Heather Ruthven, Pat Milor, Jim Row, Dave Heisler, Debbie Douglas, and Jessica Weir.  This team interviewed real estate agents, and then spent several weeks reviewing properties that had to match a rigorous set of criteria set forth by the Conference.  It became apparent that inventory that met our criteria, especially the fact that it could not be further than five miles away from the church, was low.  However, several homes that met our needs were visited, and one in particular was unanimously endorsed by all.
The Parsonage Committee requested permission from the Trustees to negotiate a contract on the house, and the Trustees approved the request, pending a final approval from the Trustees and a vote by the congregation.

In light of the information I just provided you, we are scheduling a Called Church Conference for September 5th at 7:00 pm, with the sole intention of obtaining permission from the church to purchase the property.  This meeting is authorized by the conference for this purpose, as prescribed by the Book of Discipline.

There will be information about the house available at the meeting, but the physical location is at 12729 Oak Run Court in Boynton Beach.  It is located off of Coconut Lane, near the intersection with Military Trail.  It is approximately 3.6 miles from the church.  

Please put this date on your calendar and plan on being in attendance.  As this is a Church Conference, all members are eligible to vote.
