Congregation Meeting: January 2020
Resurrection’s next semi-annual congregation meeting is Sunday, Jan. 26, at 9:30 a.m. in Resurrection Hall. Items on the agenda include the election of Congregation Council members, congregation officers, and members of the Endowment Fund Team; introducing new staff members; a financial update; and approving amendments to our constitution.
During December’s Congregation Council meeting, the Council approved four resolutions regarding constitution revisions to be considered at this meeting. They bring our constitution into conformity with the ELCA Model Constitution for Congregations and address areas of our constitution impacted by changes put in place during the implementation of our renewed strategic vision. The Council recommends the approval of all four resolutions.
Prior to the 2019 ELCA Churchwide Assembly, there was a thorough review of the governing documents for the ELCA, Synods, and Congregations. The following document is the list of amendments to the Model Constitution for Congregations that were approved by the Churchwide Assembly. Incorporating these revisions into our constitution is the purpose of Resolution #1 that has been proposed by the Congregation Council. View Model Constitution for Congregations Amendments
