Community Meetings: As
for business, we like to take care of that on Sundays, too. We usually
meet right after celebrating liturgy on the third Sundays of the month. Our leadership style is
collaborative, as we believe in shared leadership. All members may
participate in the decision-making process, and in fact are encouraged
to share their wisdom with each other. For ECC having the full
participation of lay members in decision making is essential. See Quaker Decision-Making Process This process is very good for those truly important decisions.
Visioning Committee: We are forming a new Visioning Committee for our community. This small group of members will be the ones who look ahead over the whole liturgical year and make suggestions and come up with ideas for our community. They will help prepare the agenda for our community meetings.
Administration: We have a Treasurer and a Secretary, and a few of us take care of the little things that come up between meetings, and will consult with other members by email or phone when necessary. We are now forming a Finance Committee. If you are a regular member of Emmaus ECC and would like to participate on this committee talk to Christine.
To the best of our ability we celebrate all the major feast days of
the Church. It is best to check here to see what is coming up next.
Retreats, etc. Our next retreat will be in the fall. We will have our retreat in Spokane this year. More information to follow. We usually alternate our retreats with the National ECC Synod.
The ECC Synod. The next Synod will be in September 2018 in Tempe AZ
