Event 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. Join us May 10-11 as we gather under the theme, One Bread. One Body.
