Zion’s constitution was approved at last year’s annual meeting and now it needs to ratified (to confirm by expressing consent, approval, or formal sanction). This is necessary due to the changes made in addition to the changes needed to align our constitution with the ELCA’s 2015 Model Constitution for Congregations. 
At Zion’s Annual Meeting on October 24, we will be voting to ratify the approved constitution, which was voted on at the last annual meeting.  You may review the constitution here:  Zion Lutheran Church of Warroad Constitution 2017
