At the regular meeting of Pittsburgh Area Lutheran Ministries, Sunday, September 21, 2014, the delegates voted to amend Article 12 of the Bylaws. This amendment ended PALM’s historic function of granting loans, inherited from our predecessor body, thus making available loan monies now available for mission grants. Check back soon for an updated copy of the PALM Bylaws on the PALM website.+
The last meeting, in February of this year, restored the previous Bylaws of PALM. This means we will return to having the annual meeting on the third Sunday of September. That means the next annual meeting will be held on The Feast of St. Matthew (Trinity XIV), Sunday, September 21, at 3:00PM. Once again we will be graciously hosted by First Trinity Evangelical-Lutheran Church in Pittsburgh.
The 2014 PALM Delegate Meeting will be held Sunday, February 16, at First Trinity Evangelical-Lutheran Church, at 3:00PM.
