This year's Assembly theme is We Are Lutheran: Restless and Resolute. Bishop Lull writes, "With the theme ... we will engage one another in honest conversations about God's work in our midst, the yearnings of new neighbors and young adults and the bold trust we are called to in this synod. All of us know something about being both restless and resolute in a godly way."
Registration for Synod Assembly is now open! Early-bird reduced registration rates run through April 9. Registration for Assembly ends May 7. This year, young adult lay voting members are granted a reduced fee of $90. This rate runs through May 7.
The synod is extending a special invitation to young adults (age 19-35) to be a part of this event in more and fuller ways this year. More information about opportunities for young adults can be found here.
Those who are submitting a resolution or memorial should read our tips for writing an effective resolution or memorial (PDF). The deadline for resolutions or memorials to synod assembly is Wednesday, April 4. Resolutions & memorials must be submitted to Anna Marsh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
