A big thanks to David Swartling, pictured, for writing proposed updates to the Bethany Constitution, bylaws and continuing resolutions. Lots of work, adeptly done by the former ELCA secretary. Voting members of the congregation will assess the changes that would bring the Constitution into conformity with the ELCA Model Constitution at a congregational meeting after worship on Sunday, Jan. 28. An informational meeting will take place beforehand, so if you have questions, you’ll get answers. The proposed documents are on this website, under the “Constitution” tab at the top.
Also, we're setting up the tree at 10 a.m. today, and adding the lights at 2 p.m. Come and help. Plus, I need some strong types to help move a big-screen TV to the transfer station this morning. Don't be shy to volunteer.
