Business Meeting

confirmation of
nominating committee members

The Nominating Committee plays a crucial role in selecting the lay leaders of First Free – the Nominating Committee is responsible for recruiting and evaluating candidates for the Elder and Deacon Board along with the current Elders.

The Elders have recommended Laura Malzahn and Doug Austin to fill the two vacancies on our Nominating Committee. Both Laura and Doug are long-time members of First Free. They’ve not only grown spiritually themselves but have also helped the rest of us grow through time spent teaching and leading.

We will be holding a congregational business meeting on Sunday, August 22nd, at 10:30 am in the main auditorium, to vote on confirming Laura and Doug. An online option is available below.

Anyone may attend the meeting, but only members may vote.




Please use the buttons below to sign in as a member and vote. (Please note that voting will not open until the meeting begins on Sunday morning).
