Synod Assembly 2019:
You Will Be My Witnesses

May 30 - June 1, 2019
Joseph A. Floreano Riverside Convention Center, Rochester NY

Synod Assembly 2019 will be held once again in Rochester, NY Thursday, May 30 - Saturday, June 1. Our theme this year is kicks off the second year of our synod’s Faith Alive! strategic plan, Growing in Our Witness. Our theme Scripture verses are drawn from Jesus’ words in Acts 1:6-11 and Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus’ commission to the disciples to be his witnesses and to “go, baptize and teach.”

Our World Hunger campaign will “Sneak Up on Hunger” and Bishop Macholz and his wife Lin will donate money to World Hunger based on how many people wear sneakers to Saturday morning’s plenary session.

More updates on Synod assembly, including invitations to offer workshops and participate in the Mission Expo will come after January 1, 2019.
