Assembly 2018

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!
