If the congregation shall have by-laws or other rules and regulations pertaining to the giving of notice of an organization or special meeting of the congregation, such by-laws, rules and regulations shall be complied with. The said notice shall state that the purpose, or one of the purposes, of the meeting is to decide whether the congregation shall be incorporated. L.1957, c. 82, p. 155, s. 3.
