Voting Eligibility

On June 6th, there will be a vote of “YES” / “NO” to approve the plans.  Please review the information and cast your vote on Sunday, June 6, 2021.

The Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church sets out the required process for conducting the vote.  Professing members of the First United Methodist Church of DeKalb who are present at the time of the vote are eligible to vote.

A Professing member is one who has joined the church by profession of faith through a membership service or by transfer from another church.

Contact the church office for your membership status. If you would like to become a professing member, please contact Pastor Jonathan Crail or the church office (815 756-6301) by May 16, 2021 so you can be received in membership on May 23, 2021.

Details of the time, place and procedures for the June 6 vote will be forthcoming in the mail.  Architectural drawings are displayed near the church office and will be on display in or near the sanctuary on Sundays.
