Notice of a meeting for the purpose of incorporating an unincorporated church shall
be given as follows:
1. The notice shall be in writing and shall state, in substance, that a meeting of
such unincorporated church will be held at its usual place of worship at a specified
day and hour for the purpose of incorporating such church and electing three or more
trustees, but not to exceed fifteen.
2. The notice must be signed by at least six qualified voters. A copy of such notice shall be publicly read at each of the two consecutive main
worship services, of such unincorporated church preceding the meeting to incorporate,
by the minister of such church, or if none, by the church member who has been designated
by the membership or other authorized body of the church to conduct the worship service
that day (the “officiating minister”); and at least fifteen days before the meeting
for incorporation, a copy of such notice shall be posted at the place of worship.
