The meeting was called to order by Mindy Douglas at 1:00 PM and opened with prayer. A quorum was present. Rev. Douglas stated the purpose of the meeting was to tell the session that she has received a call to another church, First Presbyterian in downtown Durham and will be leaving Chapel in the Pines after the Sunday worship service on April 3, the Sunday after Easter. She indicated that Salem Presbytery will work closely with our church to secure an interim while we search for a full time Senior Pastor. Mitzi will be a strong pastoral and worship presence. Mindy will send an email to the congregation after this meeting and snail mail letters will go tomorrow to those who may not use email.
Mindy closed the meeting with prayer and it was adjourned at 1:25PM.
