At the October meeting the Council approved the changes to Trinity’s Constitution, Bylaws, and Continuing
Resolutions. These changes gets this document up-to-date with the changes that were made at the ELCA’s Churchwide Assembly in 2019.
The primary changes are: 1)
The addition of a whole section regarding the call of deacons as rostered leaders in the ELCA, 2) The addition of allowing electronic means to conduct the business of the Church and our congregation,
and 3) The addition of a whole section giving congregations the ability to form a parish with another local congregation. (Both changes numbers 1 and 3 above do not directly affect us at Trinity at
this time, but are required changes for all ELCA congregations.)
We are also making changes
at the congregation level. We have some committees (which are closed groups whose members are stipulated in the bylaws) and ministry teams (which are open groups to all members and non-members). The
only new committee that is being formed is the Pastor-Staff-Congregation Relations Committee. This is a merger of two previous committees - the Personnel Committee and the Pastor-Congregation
If you have any questions
regarding any of these changes do not hesitate to contact Pastor Tim.
