Annual congregational meeting
Brookfield CRC’s annual Congregational Meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 22 at 6:30 p.m. Childcare will be available. Congregation packets will be emailed to members, with hard copies will be available upon request. Absentee ballots for members who cannot attend the meeting are available online. Ballots must be signed by the BCRC member, then enclose it in an envelope with your name on the front, and either place it in the box in the church office, mail it to the church prior to the meeting, or have someone bring it to the meeting.
Election of office-bearers
Candidates for the Elder and Deacon will be presented at the May 22 Congregational Meeting, where three will be elected for each office: Elder nominees Rob Buikema, Phil Bylsma, Randy Cupery, Mike Huenink, Zach Te Winkel, and Bob Wiers; Deacon nominees Sandy Boersma, Brian Domino, Ben Fox, Dale Kooyenga, Jeremy Monte, and Kevin Yttre. Elected office-bearers will serve three-year terms beginning July 1, 2013. We give thanks to God for those who have served faithfully, and are completing their terms of service: Elders Steve Baas, Paul Boersma, and Paul Neerhof; Deacons Shawn Donnelly, Brad Gabrielse, and Wendy Van Vugt.
Children at the Lord’s Table—resources
After careful consideration of Synod’s 2011 decision to welcome children to The Lord’s Table, the Council of Brookfield CRC approved a plan that will allow the baptized children of the church to partake at the Lord’s Table, under the supervision of their parents and the elders upon “graduation” from Children’s Worship. A variety of resources are available:
