Proposed Changes to the Constitution

Every two years at the Churchwide Assembly changes are made to the model constitution. ELCA churches are then required to incorporate those changes into their local church constitutions. . We are playing catch up, adding the changes from the 2009, 2011, and 2013 Churchwide Assemblies in order to align our constitution with the model constitution.

At our Annual Meeting in January, members will be asked to vote on the proposed changes and then one year later (January, 2016) to ratify those changes and also vote on the proposed changes from the 2015 Churchwide Assembly, which will be ratified at the Annual Meeting in January, 2017. Its an on-going process. The proposed changes are available here. The existing constitution is available on the Wiki.
