Hello? Are You Talking about WELS?
Give Me a Minute for a Horse Laugh

"That was a good one, eh Nelly?
They don't even answer certified letters!"

  • When an active member of the church is pushed out of the synod, the entire voting assembly of the congregation should be informed, consulted and given time to consider. 
  • If an appeals is sought, the appeals board should be able to consult with the entire voting assembly of the former congregation. 
  • The former member should also be allowed to present character references on their behalf. This would provide for the greatest number of opinions and support for either side.
The help desk at WELS headquarters is staffed 24/7.
A recorded message says, "Write a letter."
That is the first step in excommunication in WELS.
