17-1716c.Same; procedure for transfer of property. An application for an order and disposition of property pursuant to K.S.A. 17-1716b, and amendments thereto, may be made by any member or officer of the Kansas-Oklahoma Conference of the United Church of Christ when duly authorized by the board of trustees, or managers, of the Kansas-Oklahoma Conference of the United Church of Christ, upon a verified petition setting forth the facts authorizing such order and disposition of property.

Upon the presentation of such petition to the proper district court, such court shall proceed in a summary manner as in other civil cases to inquire into the merits of such application. If upon examination by the court it appears to the court that the making of the order and disposition of the property applied for are necessary or proper for any cause mentioned in K.S.A. 17-1716b, and amendments thereto, the court shall make a final order declaring such church or society extinct, dissolving the same and transferring the title and possession of any property which may belong to such church or society, or which may be held in trust for such church or society; and vesting a perfect title to the property in the Kansas-Oklahoma Conference of the United Church of Christ. It being the intent and purpose of this act to preserve to the denomination of the Kansas-Oklahoma Conference of the United Church of Christ all property owned by, or held in trust for any extinct church or society of any denomination formerly called the Congregational Church, the Congregational and Christian Church, the Kansas Congregational and Christian Conference, the Central-South Conference of the Congregational-Christian Churches or the Kansas City Synod of the Evangelical and Reformed Church.
