Updates from the Board of Elders
October 22, 2020
Dear Member of MHBC,
As mentioned previously in an update given to the church regarding our Annual General Meeting (AGM), we are required under the Canada Corporations Act to hold our AGM prior to December 31, 2020. This meeting will be held on Sunday, November 22, 2020 at 11:15 am following the morning service. Please find attached the agenda for this meeting.
The plan right now is to have the church open for corporate worship, according to the guidelines set out by the Ontario government, on Sunday, November 1, 2020. Having the church open for worship also enables us to better facilitate a member meeting that can, in part, be held in person. Of course many people will not be attending in person as they are not comfortable doing so or because space will be limited by the 30% capacity rule for places of worship.
According to our church constitution, we are permitted to achieve meeting quorum by in-person and electronic means. However, we are not permitted to vote using electronic means and only in-person or proxy votes will count.
We would encourage you to please make an effort by whichever means you can, to attend the Annual General Meeting on Sunday, November 22, 2020 at 11:15 am. The Board at MHBC values the input of all the members as the church is the body of Christ and we strive to do church business together as a unified body. Further instructions will be sent out in the next couple of weeks on how to attend this meeting in-person and virtually.
If you or someone you know is struggling with online meeting or needs help in some way to be a part of this Annual General Meeting, please bring it to the Board’s attention.
The Board at MHBC
