Event description

Description

Each spring, synods gather in assembly to lift up and celebrate ministries and address the official business of the synod. The Assembly is this synod's highest legislative authority, limited only by the constitution and bylaws of the synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the assembly's own resolutions. Assembly is also a cherished time when we gather from across the synod to reconnect with friends, meet new ones, and share what it means to be the body of Christ.

Who May Register?
In accordance with S7.21 of the synod constitution, voting member to the Assembly are the following:
1. All rostered individuals in the synod.
2. The formula for congregational representation for the synod assembly is: two voting members elected by each congregation (one male, one female) plus an additional lay voting member for every 500 baptized members over 75 (ie: 1250=1 additional, 2250+3 additional, etc.)
3. Members of the Synod Council.
*All assembly voting members must be voting members of their congregations.
*For broader representation, only one member per household is preferred.
*The total lay delegation from any congregation must be, as nearly as possible, 50% male and 50% female.
