HELP WANTED--Constitutional Review/Update

The St. James Constitution & Bylaws was last reviewed and updated in 2011, and a number of things has changed, both with our congregation/operation and with the St. Paul Area Synod and ELCA. An effort to "get current" the larger church, council members Paul Wojahn and Pam Larson have begun to review our C&B to identify areas where updates are needed. This work will continue over the next several months, culminating a vote to adopt changes at our next annual meeting in January.

This need not (and should not) be a council-only effort. To that end, anyone interested in participating in this review/update is invited to contact Jeff Owens ( to discuss this opportunity to be of service.
