New Constitution Approved

January 21, 2015

congmtg110sThis 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.

One item that did not make it into the newsletter this month was the death over the weekend of retired UW-Parkside Art professor David V. Holmes, 69. In 2000, Dr. Holmes painted the murals adorning our second story walls. You can see some of those paintings on our Flickr site.

The newsletter includes details about two congregational meetings slated in January, letters from ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton and Greater Milwaukee Synod Bishop Jeff Barrow, photos from the kids’ Christmas pageant, a message about reorganization of Thrivent’s local chapter system, and January’s calendar of events.

Christmas Eve services

December 16, 2014

xmas1002sOn Wednesday, December 24, we gather to proclaim the coming of the light. Isaiah announces that the people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. Paul reminds us that the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all. In the familiar account of Christ’s birth, the evening sky is bright with the heavenly host singing, “Glory to God in the highest.”

Amid our broken world we proclaim that the prince of peace is born among us. God comes to us in human flesh—in Christ’s body and blood — so that we may be bearers of divine light to all the world.

At the 4:30 p.m. service, organist Joyce Kaiser and the Brass Nickel will lead us in Christmas music. The afternoon service ends with Holy Communion and the congregation singing “Silent Night” by candlelight.

At 6:00 p.m., Pastor Jhon Freddy Correa will lead a Spanish-language Candle Light service. ¡Ven y recibe la alegría del bebe!

Join us for one or both of the December 24 worship services as we welcome the Prince of Peace!
