Please note that, according to our bylaws,
“Voting Members are those Confirmed Members who are in good standing.
…A Member in good standing is one who partakes of the Sacrament of Holy Communion, supports the church with offerings and participates in the life and worship of the congregation, and is faithful in carrying out the responsibilities of membership.
…Responsible church membership assumes that:
(a) United in one Lord, one faith and one Baptism, the Members are to be constant in worship and in the study of the Holy Scriptures, regularly nourishing their life in Christ in the Sacrament of the Altar, presenting their children for Holy Baptism and providing for their Christian instruction.
(b) The Members are called by the Spirit to lead godly lives, to promote the unity and welfare of the Congregation in the bond of peace, to proclaim the Gospel and to renounce the evil one. The commitment of each Member to this call is to be expressed through the ELCIC, its synods and this Church by a life of repentance, faith, prayer and the sharing of resources.”
