All Synod members, lay or rostered, are invited to attend the annual gathering for their Area. Attendees will share in a day of worship, fellowship, learning, and discussion. This is an opportunity to make connections with other individuals and congregations from the Area, and to get important updates about what is happening around the Synod and what is coming up at the National Assembly this summer. Each congregation is encouraged to have a representative (or two or three!) at this gathering.
The gathering is offered as a hybrid event; choose to attend in person or online.
