Constitution Amendments
It is recommended that Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) congregations and synods review the adopted amendments for their constitutions as soon as possible after each churchwide assembly to incorporate the required changes and to consider the recommended changes. The churchwide assembly met in 2019 and in coordination with the following amendments, the 2019 Churchwide Assembly authorized the secretary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America to:

  • strike “synodical” and replace with “synod”
  • strike “the congregation” and replace with “this congregation” where appropriate
  • make editorial changes so that the Model Constitution for Congregations follows the Constitution, Bylaws, and Continuing Resolutions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Constitution for Synods.

A copy with the proposed amendments is available by clicking here. Copies of the constitution are also available in the Incarnation Office. The congregation will vote on these amendments at the annual meeting.
