A time to gather.
We are celebrating the mission we share together of proclaiming the good news in Jesus Christ to all the world! We will be considering the many ways that we are the church as we live out our daily lives as disciples of Jesus in this time in history. We will share in Bible Study, Worship, Mission Moments, Keynote Presentations, and Faith Practices/Discipleship Experiences and carry out the business matters of the Synod. We look forward to being together with you.
Meet our Guests.
