German Evangelical Lutheran Church -- Aug-Oct 1869


 

-- from "Der deutsche Staten-Islander", August 14, 1869

German Evangelical Lutheran Church in Stapleton, Staten Island

Due to the oustanding resignation of Pastor C. Gohling from the position as preacher of the congregation, it has become necessary for the church council to take steps and to ask all the church members and the German residents of Staten Island to take part in the selection of the next preacher.

According to the church constitution, paragraph 11, every church member has the right to put forward a candidate in writing; and per paragraph 14, the election will be decided by a majority vote of the congregation.

To guarantee the preaching receipts and other expenses, it is necessary to request that the members of the congregation, and those that wish to join, to agree to the renting of pews and subscription of contributions for the fiscal year beginning on Feb. 1, 1870.

In the name of the church council,
E
. Hagedorn, Secretary-- from "Der deutsche Staten-Islander", August 21, 1869

In regards to the congregational meeting which took place on July 18, where the
resignation of Pastor Goehling was discussed, we must decidedly put in a protest against the resolution arrived at, in accordance with the church constitution
, since over two-thirds of the church members were not invited to this meeting, and therefore were not present.

In the name of many members.

German Evangelical Lutheran Congregation of Stapleton, Staten Island

German Evangelical Lutheran Church,

Issue No. 44 of the "Deutschen Staten Islanders", under "Letter to the Editor", contained an anonymous protest against the resolution of the congregational meeting of July 18 of this year. To which the church council replies, that the extraordinary meeting was in accordance with the church constitution, and was announced on the previous Sunday, as well as on the day ofthe meeting, from the pulpit; then outside of church, it was personally brought to the attention of as many members as possible. If a few members remained uninformed, the blame in every case lay only with themselves and their lack of a lively interest in the proceedings of the congregation.

Their protest is therefore without any foundation.

In the name of the church council,

E. Hagedord, Secretary

In the name of very many members of the German Evangelical Lutheran congregation.
