April 30 - May 2
As of now, 2021 Assembly is scheduled to be in-person in Sunriver. However, due to the long vaccination timeline, we may be online again this year. The final decision will be made with your synod council by February 1st. A couple of things to consider as you prepare for Synod Assembly 2021:
- Voting members: Your elected voting members must be people comfortable with (or willing to learn how to join) an online meeting (and the access to resources to so).
- Additional voting members: If we do go online again, the financial impact will be much less than when we meet in person, so it’s another a perfect year to include your additional voting members (up to 2 people who identify LGBTQIA+, up to 2 people for whom English is not their first language AND, up to 2 youth or young adult voting members).
What a time to be God’s church! As the Gospel of Matthew tells us, “with God all things are possible.” We have learned, grown and changed thanks to the Coronavirus, and it’s not over yet.
