Called Session Meeting
December 20, 2009

Attending Elders:   Wes McGraw, Ed Park, Mary Donna Pond (Clerk), and the Rev. Mindy Douglas Adams (moderator).
Also Attending:   Will Pierson, Jim Bond


The meeting was called to order at 9:35 a.m. in the Media Center at North Chatham School.  Mindy opened the meeting with prayer.  The purpose of the meeting was to accept Will Pierson as a member of Chapel in the Pines.  Mindy explained that Will and she had been meeting weekly to guide Will through the process of confirmation.  She said he had made the decision to read the book of Genesis and had begun reading Exodus.  During their time together, Will had asked a lot of questions and they had wonderful conversations about God and faith and the church.  Those present then shared their joy and excitement about Will’s faith journey and also a bit about their own faith.  Wes moved that Will be accepted into membership and Ed seconded the motion which passed unanimously.  Mindy then explained what would occur during the worship service.  Following a closing prayer, the meeting was adjourned at 10:00 a.m.
Respectfully submitted,

Mary Donna Pond, Clerk   Mindy Douglas Adams, Moderator
