The Council / Session
The Governing Body of First Presbyterian Church of Monroe is the Council (formerly the Session), which consists of 18 Elders and 2 Youth Delegates.
As many of you are aware, effective July 10, 2011, the Presbyterian Church (USA) enacted a new constitution, designing it to be less cumbersome that of the previous constitution. As a result, our old church bylaws, which were last updated in the '80's, must be rewritten.
The Council (formerly known as Session - one of the changes in the new constitution) recently met and reviewed the old bylaws, rewriting them so they are in accordance with the new constitution.
The congregation approved these new bylaws at the annual meeting on Sunday, January 29. Click here to view the bylaws .
Not much had to change with the old bylaws. However, please pay particular attention to Article Number XII, Ruling Elders (which is the new term for members of Council): this bylaw will, through attrition over 3 years, reduce our number of Council members from 18 to 12, which is more in line for the amount of our church membership.
If you have any questions regarding these new bylaws, please feel free to contact Leslie McInerney through the church office. We look forward to seeing you at the annual meeting. Many thanks to all of you for your support of our church.
