Cross Lutheran Church ELCA

Congregational Discernment

After conducting four forums to discuss our Core beliefs, the church council met on August 9, to review the results of these forums held in July and August.  The consensus of the council is that we will proceed with a congregational vote to determine if there is enough interest to proceed with a formal vote to disaffiliate from the ELCA and join the NALC.  It is our intent to complete the voting process by Sept. 25, 2016.

A letter will be going out with the ballot and voting information and will first be in members' mailboxes August 28.  If this letter is not picked up by Sept. 11, ballots and the letter will be mailed to members.  Ballots need to be received back by mail or in person by Sept. 24.  For further information contact one of the council members.

The vote was counted on September 25 and announced after worship. 78 voted to stay ELCA, 42 to join the NALC, 1 other response.
