Dear CHBC Members,
Once again, it is time for us to replace those who have faithfully served on the Church Council of Crescent Hill Baptist Church with new servants. The Church Council is comprised of eleven laypersons who offer guidance to the congregation. The Church Council is not the ultimate decision-making body within our congregation. In keeping with our Baptist legacy and Crescent Hill Baptist Church policy the congregation has the final say in all major matters regarding the life of the church. Nonetheless, the Church Council plays a significant role in charting our course.
This year we have three seats on the Council to fill. CHBC members are eligible to vote. After prayerful consideration, please write down up to six names that you trust most with the future of our congregation. Active members are eligible for Church Council positions. However, ministers and church staff are not eligible, nor are their spouses. Please keep in mind the ethnic, age, and gender diversity among us. Positions will be offered to persons in the order of number of votes received until the three vacancies are filled.
You may return those ballots by mail, leave them in the designated box for the ballots which is located in the church office, or place them in the offering plate when it is passed on Sunday morning. Ballots may be cast until 12:15 PM on Sunday, December 10. Digital ballots can be submitted by scanning the QR code or by visiting chbcky.org/nominations. Please vote via paper or digital ballot but not both.
Melanie Bunger, Chair, Church Council
