The Reverend Gordon M. Rankin has been nominated to be the new Conference Minister. Read the letter from Neal Cass, Chairperson of the Conference Minister Search Committee.
Since Conference bylaws require election of a Conference Minister at a meeting of the Gathered Conference, and because the Annual Meeting in October contains a full agenda, the Board of Directors has authorized a special meeting for the purpose of calling the Rev. Rankin as Conference Minister. Read more in the letter from Marcie Miller, Conference President, and Dawn Berry, Conference Secretary.
The special meeting will be held on Saturday, August 4, 2018, at Laconia Congregational Church, UCC, at 11 AM. (Click here for directions to the church.) The agenda will include time to hear Gordon speak and a brief business meeting with vote. A reception and celebration will follow. Churches are entitled to send the same number of delegates as they would for the Annual Meeting.
Opportunities to “meet and greet” Gordon prior to the special meeting are also scheduled. Attend the one most convenient for you:
- Thursday, August 2, 6-8 p.m., at Gorham Congregational Church
- Friday, August 3, 9-11 a.m., at the Conference Center
- Friday, August 3, 6-8 p.m., at Keene Congregational Church
