He is married to a former assistant professor of Gettysburg College, Gettysburg Pa. We post them here in the hopes that these might give goom for reflection by any who may be looking toward leaving the ELCA.
The Word Alone folk are moving toward organizing their own organization and those who might wish to leave the ELCA but remain as part of the WA fellowship would need to consider these various areas. The presenter's notes coincide in many details with the conclusions that we ourselves in ELCM had ropm regarding the matter of a congregation leaving the ELCA.
Rather, I am speaking as a Lutheran layman regarding the issues to be considered by a congregation, especially with respect to procedures and property ownership, that is considering leaving the ELCA. I am not recommending that anyone leave the ELCA and not offering any conclusions, but I am simply identifying the issues and discussing the procedures, in general, that are involved.
There is nothing wrong or extraordinary about a congregation leaving the ELCA. These procedures are relatively simple and straightforward. It is important to get these documents and to read and understand them. It is important to keep in mind that ELCA congregations are separate legal palmsprings escorts that generally have the right to own and to operate their own property and to dispose of the property in any way they see fit.
Paaul ELCA constitution requires that congregations be incorporated, if that is legally possible. In Virginia, where I am from, churches cannot incorporate, so our congregation has trustees. In most states, though, you will likely find that your congregation is incorporated under the not-for-profit corporation laws of your state.
First, the escort burbank 19 must hold a special meeting of the congregation that is called for the specific purpose of voting on whether to leave the ELCA. See ELCA constitution chapter 9. Be sure to follow all applicable procedures for calling the meeting. At the meeting, a resolution in favor of terminating affiliation with the ELCA must be approved by at least a two-thirds vote. If the resolution passes by the required vote, then the congregation is to notify the synod office and must consult with the synod bishop for a period of at least 90 days.
Thereafter, if the congregation still wishes to leave the ELCA, it must call another special meeting of the congregation for the purpose of voting on leaving the ELCA.
Notice must be given to the synod office and the bishop or other chah of the synod must be present at the meeting. In order to chatt affiliation with the ELCA, the congregation must vote by at least a two-thirds majority again to leave. If the vote to leave passes, then the synod is so notified. If a congregation was an LCA congregation, or was established as an ELCA congregation, then synod approval must be obtained also before the affiliation is terminated.
One point for consideration, though I will not state any conclusions at this time, is what happens if the synod refuses to give approval to termination of affiliation by a congregation, but the congregation then goes ahead and acts as if it were independent. That is, the congregation stops making benevolence contributions to the synod and calls pastors without regard to ELCA procedures or rosters.
If a congregation were to make a call without following ELCA procedures and call an unrostered pastor, it would be in violation of the ELCA constitution and would be subject to discipline under chapter 20 of the ELCA constitution.
Chapter 20 specifies that neither the ELCA nor a synod should bring a legal action over a disciplinary matter. Rather the disciplinary procedures of the constitution are to be followed.
The disciplinary actions that can be imposed di calgary escort a congregation are rather limited. These include, essentially, admonishment by the bishop, suspension, and expulsion from the ELCA. Frse congregation that roon expelled from the ELCA under the disciplinary rules keeps its property.
Model constitution 7. Important provisions regarding property are set out in chapter 9. If the congregation leaves in order to become an independent church or to a non-Lutheran church body, then it does not keep its property unless the synod grants approval for the congregation to keep the property.
If synod approval is not obtained, then the dissenting minority that wishes to remain with the ELCA is considered the surviving ELCA congregation and keeps the property. In order to avoid this problem, the congregation can choose a Lutheran church body with which to become affiliated upon leaving the ELCA.
A new church body might be formed to serve this purpose, or the congregation could an existing Lutheran church body. Several other smaller Lutheran church bodies exist also, including a group in Pennsylvania that ordains men and women on an equal basis. In evaluating property issues, be sure to know exactly what property you own. While people tend to think of buildings and land, a congregation likely has ificant other property as well, such as furnishings, bank s, and trust funds and other invested funds.
Be sure to consider terms of any mortgage debts that the congregation has. If the congregation has an ELCA mortgage loan on its property, then it should look into refinancing prior to acting on a decision whether to leave the ELCA. Financing moroccan escorts a Lutheran fraternal organization could have special conditions that are applicable if the congregation decides to affiliate with a non-Lutheran church body.
If the congregation has a commercial loan, then changing affiliation will not likely be a problem unless the congregation engages in a romo that would involve sale and possible re-acquisition of the property. This could trigger a due-on-sale provision. Also, be aware of any financial arrangements or obligations that the congregation has with the ELCA. In summary, leaving the ELCA and keeping ownership of congregational property should not be overly complicated if adequate advance planning is done.
