The Oregon Synod is doing an experiment this year. For 20 years the Synod has had 3-day Synod Assemblies which combine business (the synod's "Annual Meeting") and worship, education, networking, fun, conversation, a beautiful banquet, etc. In 2016 the Synod Assembly voted to make 2018 an experimental year in which we would have a 1-day Assembly only, accompanied by Regional Gatherings around the state which would be non-legislative events, involve more people, and be more specific to concerns and learning for differ parts of the state. Our 1-day Assembly is our official, "Synod Business Meeting" and the information you need for this is here. Welcome!
Regional Gatherings begin April 7 at Grace First Lutheran in Bend.
Deans, Mission Table Leaders, Synod Council Members, local worship planning teams, cooks and musicians, and synod staff have been working hard to make these events a success. See you at a Gathering near you soon!
