Proposed Update to the Church Bylaws

The session at its May meeting approved a new update to the current 1997 church bylaws. We are going to call a Special Congregational Meeting for June 4 after the service to seek approval of the updated bylaws. We want to give members time to read both the old and new versions in order to prepare for the vote on the fourth. If you are unable to download these documents, information on ordering a paper copy will be sent out soon.

Shepherd of the Valley Presbyterian Church – 1801 Montaño Rd. Albuquerque, NMthe New Mexico Conversation Project

Good parking. Refreshments. Professionals to answer your questions. Free resources and handouts (in English and Spanish) to take home. A short program featuring national speaker Rev. Rosemary Lloyd, along with fellow New Mexicans, sharing stories about:

“HAVING THE CONVERSATION: HOW IT HELPS WHEN YOU DO. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON’T.”

We all know how important it is to think and talk about our health care values ahead of time, so those values are respected in times of serious illness.

How should we start that conversation? What about family members who don’t want to talk about it? How should we talk to our doctors? What role does faith play? What resources are available to us here in New Mexico?

5:30-6:00 Refreshments. Visit tables, check out resources.
6:00-7:00 “Having the Conversation: Why it Matters”
