Congregational Meeting: Constitution Update

The Council is calling a Congregational Meeting for Sunday, December 10 at 11:30am to vote on updating the Faith-Lilac Way Constitution. Discussion of the changes will take place at the Adult Class on Sunday, December 10 at 9:15am. The Congregational meeting and the vote will take place following the 10:30 worship service. A majority vote is needed to approve the amendments to the constitution. A second vote will take place at the Annual Meeting on Sunday, January 28 (11:30am) to ratify the new amended Constitution by a two-thirds vote.

What is being changed?

1. The legal name of this church is “Faith-Lilac Way English Lutheran Church.” The council is proposing updating the name to “Faith-Lilac Way Lutheran Church.”

2. The ELCA has made changes to the “Model Constitution” since we last adopted it in 1992. We are updating our constitution to more closely reflect the ELCA model.

3. The council is seeking to change the amount of money beyond the budget that is permissible to be spent without a congregational meeting from $4,000 to 5% of the budget.
