Fathers and Brothers:
Three Teaching Elders and three Ruling Elders from three different churches have requested a Called Meeting. (See email below.)
The Moderator is currently out of state and I have not been able to contact him. Therefore, in accordance with the provisions set forth in BCO 13-12 (“Should the Moderator be for any reason unable to act, the Stated Clerk shall, under the same requirements, issue the call”), I am issuing the call for a Called Meeting of the Presbytery of Southwest Florida on Monday, June 7, at 7:00 p.m. at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Riverview, FL.
The date of June 7 fulfills the provision that “notice of the special meeting shall be sent not less than ten days in advance to each teaching elder and to the Clerk of Session of every church,” per BCO 13-12.
Also, in accordance with the provisions set forth in BCO 13-12 (“In the notice, the purpose of the meeting shall be stated, and no business other than that named in the notice is to be transacted”), the purpose for the Called Meeting is as follows: To request Presbytery to establish an Investigative Committee for a Teaching Elder, per BCO 31-2.
Grace and peace,
Rev. Freddy Fritz
Presbytery of Southwest Florida
