Emaus Constitution

As part of the incorporation of Emaus ELCA by congregational vote on January 24, 2016, the congregation approved a new constitution. The constitution has been given the stamp of approval by the Secretary of the Greater Milwaukee Synod and has been forwarded to the churchwide office of the ELCA in Chicago.

Much of the new constitution is identical to that approved by the Emmaus Evangelical Lutheran Church congregation in January, 2015, but new provisions provide for one joint leadership council with co-leaders on the various teams (committees), for assuring representation from both English and Spanish speaking communities, and for rotation of the council presidency between English and Spanish speaking candidates.Const106

A parallel version of the constitution (English on the left, Spanish on the right), is available for download here.

We thank the members of the Constitution Committee, including Cathy Meyer, Art Smith, Pastor Jhon Freddy Correa, Pastor Gabriel Marcano, and Pastor Mary Janz, for their diligent work.
