North Carolina Baptists from across the state will gather in Greensboro Nov. 12-13 for the 182nd annual meeting of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSC). The meeting will be held at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex Special Events Center.

Churches to the annual meeting should receive messenger cards by the end of September. For questions about messenger cards, call (800) 395-5102, ext. 5555.

Messengers must present their properly signed card to the Credentials Subcommittee at the time of registration in order to receive their messenger packet. For more information about how to complete the cards, visit ncannualmeeting.org.

N.C. Baptists are invited and encouraged to attend the annual meeting. However, messengers are those attendees who have an opportunity to vote during the business sessions and speak at the microphone about an issue.

All cooperating BSC churches are eligible to send messengers to the meeting.

The number of messengers a church may send is determined on either a numerical or financial basis:

On a numerical basis: Every cooperating church shall be allowed two messengers. One additional messenger is allowed for every 100 members or major fraction thereof, beyond the first 100 members, provided that to have more than two messengers, the church financially supports the Cooperative Program by giving at least one percent of undesignated budget gifts through the Cooperative Program of the Convention (funds used as matching funds for the expanded annuity shall not be considered).

On a financial basis: Every cooperating church giving five percent of undesignated budget gifts through the Cooperative Program shall have two messengers and one additional messenger for every one percent beyond the initial five percent.

Messengers must register in order to be eligible to vote during the business sessions. Registration opens Monday, Nov. 12, at 4 p.m., and will close 30 minutes after the general session that evening. On Nov. 13, registration opens at 8 a.m. and will close at 6:45 p.m.
