**Currently Article XI-Dissolution reads as follows:
In the event the R.V.C.C. and the corporation should dissolve, the ownership of the physical property and real estate of the church shall pass to the Maine Conference of the United Church of Christ. In no instance shall any property, real or otherwise, pass to any private individual or individuals.
It is proposed that this be changed to read as follows:
In the event the R.V.C.C. and the corporation should dissolve, the ownership of the physical property and real estate of the church shall pass to an organization legally considered a non-profit organization. In no instance shall any property, real or otherwise pass to any private individual or individuals nor to any “for-profit” organization.
