Updated Church Constitution

November 19, 2014

Const106An updated constitution for the church was approved by the church council at its November meeting. This updated constitution is necessary because the current one that we are operating under dates from 1986 — before the ELCA was formed. In the intervening years the model constitution of the ELCA has changed and we need to change ours to be in conformance.

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 has to both approve it on 18 January, 2015, and ratify it at our annual meeting on 25 January, 2015. Please download a copy here or pick one up at church. If you have any questions about the document or the process please contact either Cathy Meyer or Art Smith.

An update on the film “Cowspiracy”: The Racine Marcus Theater did not respond to the request for the showing the end of this month. However, Tinseltown in Kenosha (at Highway 50 and 31) has agreed to host the film being promoted by FaithWorks. The new date is Thursday, December 11 at 6:30 p.m. Follow this link to purchase tickets ($11.00 each).

I personally have ordered a block of tickets and would like to make them available for purchase at a discount, See me if you or others are interested. I can’t recommend this film highly enough. It was a huge eye-opener for me! I hope you can free up your calendar Dec. 11 and join us in Kenosha for the film.
