This past Sunday, the congregation unanimously approved an updated Emmaus constitution. This updated constitution is necessary to conform to the model constitution of the ELCA. We have also taken this opportunity to streamline many of the provisions that we are allowed to take locally so that the words reflect the practices here at Emmaus.
In order for this constitution to become operational, the congregation must still ratify it at our annual meeting on January 25. Please download a copy here or pick one up in the narthex.
The congregation will be asked to approve a budget for 2015 and elect a church council at the regular congregational meeting after the 9:00 worship service this Sunday. FaithWorks’s new Covenant will also be submitted for approval.
