Council President's Report
Dear UELC Congregational Family,
As the season of Advent has arrived, I am mindful that this the time of the year when we are usually preparing for our annual congregational Advent dinner as well as our Women’s Christmas tea and ornament exchange. So many traditions will be missed this year and I look forward to hopefully being able to resume them next Advent season!
While it certainly will not be as festive as the annual dinner or the Christmas tea, we do have a congregational meeting scheduled for Sunday, December 13th at 11:00 AM and I hope to see many of you virtually! Items for the congregational business meeting will include:
1. Congregational vote regarding changes to the UELC Constitution. These changes are all related to required changes from both the ELCA and the Florida-Bahamas Synod. Several members of the church have worked diligently to bring the UELC constitution in line with the necessary changes and a congregational meeting and vote is necessary to ratify these changes.
2. UELC church council elections for 2021
3. Provide a review/update regarding the shared pastorate arrangement with Gethsemane Lutheran Church. A summary of the survey findings will be reported as well as an opportunity for a question and answer session regarding the shared pastorate arrangement
Information for the Zoom meeting link as well as copy of the constitutional changes were provided in an earlier email, but the Zoom link is also copied below:
