Called Session Meeting, December 18, 2011 – Chapel in the Pines Library

Attending:  Elders Lynne Hoerter, Cindy Massey, Michelle Morehouse, Rachel Stevens, John Walkup, Jerry Wehmueller, Mary Donna Pond (Clerk), and the Rev. Mindy Douglas Adams (Moderator).   

Guests:  Heather and Jim Bogan


The meeting was called to order by Mindy Douglas Adams at 9:40 a.m.  She led the opening prayer.  She stated the purpose of the meeting was to receive two new members:  Heather and Jim Bogan.  She reminded everyone that the baptism of the Bogan’s daughter, Eileen, had already been approved by the Session.

Everyone briefly introduced themselves.  Michelle moved that Heather and Jim be received as members of Chapel in the Pines; Jerry seconded the motion.  It was passed unanimously and with joy.

Mindy drew attention to several items in the new member packets and asked that Heather and Jim complete the new member forms and leave them with the Clerk.  She then explained what would happen during the service during the time of receiving new members.  She reiterated how happy we are to have the Bogans join us at this pivotal time in the life of the church.  After a brief time of questions and answers, Mindy closed the meeting with prayer and it was adjourned at 10:00 a.m.


Respectfully submitted, 



Mary Donna Pond, Clerk
