Attention All Teaching Elders, active Ruling Elders, Chairs of Personnel Committees, and Treasurers:
There is no time in the life of a congregation quite like when the minister is expecting a baby. Please join one of two listening sessions about Clergy Parental Leave policies.
- Evening listening session October 20, 2020, 7pm-8pm, or
- Daytime listening session October 21, 2020, 11am-12pm
During the September meeting of Presbytery, the Commission on Ministry recommended that the minimum requirement for parental leave be lowered from 8 weeks to 6 weeks. After significant opposition, the recommended policy was sent back to COM for revision. To better understand the impact of family leave in the life of a congregation, COM would like to hear the perspectives of as many church leaders as possible.
We will break out into groups of no more than ten to give everyone ample time to express their opinions. You must register by Friday, October 16, 2020! Please share this widely!
