PRLC Constitution and Bylaws Update

Please join PRLC member and former Council Secretary Marie Gehman on February 17, 2019 to learn about important proposed changes to the Constitution and Bylaws. The constitution currently in effect dates back to 2008. You will be hearing why an updated, unified document will be brought for a vote at the next regular Congregational Meeting in April.

The goals of this update are in short:

  1. To unify Constitution and Bylaws into one document. They are currently two separate documents, and some of the numbering scheme has gotten misaligned over the years.
  2. To match the ELCA Model Constitution and incorporate language changes developed at the 2013 and 2016 Churchwide Assemblies.
  3. To remove language that no longer reflects current PRLC practices.

Please come to the Tree of Life Room on February 17, 2019 at 10:00 am, between services.
