GS 2004 Article 66 – Assessment for the General Fund
Committee 1 presented its proposal on theletter from the Emmanuel Church at Guelph re: Assessment for the General Fund. After a round of discussion, the following was adopted:
Letter from the Emmanuel Church at Guelph re: Assessment for the General Fund
This letter is declared admissible.
The church at Guelph requests that the assessment for the General Fund be approved by Synod itself (just like classical assessments are approved at Classis).
- 4.1 The church at Carman (East) has always monitored the situation closely and requested regular assessments as time went on.
- 4.2 The increase in the number of committees due to our contact with the URCNA created a situation in which the expenses were less predictable. New committees cannot present a budget prior to commencing their work.
- 4.3 Classical assessments are more predictable than the expenses incurred by synodical deputies.
Synod decide not to accede to the request of the Emmanuel Church at Guelph.
