On October 9, Immanuel will gather as a congregation to vote on our new constitution. The meeting will include the introduction to the constitution and vote ONLY. It will be held after the late service, at 11:30am. The full document may be found here, and copies are also available at the church.
A few notes:
- The document includes the constitution and bylaws. Be sure to read the introduction. It explains how everything is numbered.
- Anything with a star beside it is in the constitution of every ELCA congregation.
- The sections in red are provisions from our current bylaws that have been integrated into the document. Some of these are part of the constitution and some remain as bylaws. Therefore, the document is a combination of provisions that we must include and provisions based upon our current bylaws.
If you have questions, please contact a member of the Constitution Task Group (Doug Wangensteen, Kelley Wells or Zach Marsh) or Pastor Cindy.
