2021 Southwestern Minnesota Synod Assembly
June 6, 11 & 12, 2021
Virtual Assembly - Gustavus Adolphus College, St. Peter, MN
We are grateful you will be joining us on June 6, 11 & 12th, when we will gather virtually on Zoom videoconferencing platform as a synod to worship, conduct the business of the assembly, and elect a new bishop. While this year’s gathering may look a little different, we are coming to you with the same excitement to gather in faith and gratitude as we all experience the assembly in a new way! We want all participants to have an enjoyable, positive experience and we have worked hard and sought excellent advice from the brave synods who have gone before us. Please the whole pre-assembly book, participate in all pre-assembly meetings, practice sessions, and ballots. Most importantly, pray. Now more than ever, we are called to show up and remember that church is more than a building, it is a community. The work of our synod takes all of us. Though we might wish we could gather in person, we are committed to making this assembly the next best thing! We ask for your grace as we navigate this exciting adventure together!
The Synod Assembly Worship Team would like to invite you to take a picture of your rostered minister with your synod assembly voting members so we can use it as part of our worship service on Friday, June 11th. Preferably we would like it taken at your church, either inside or outside the building. Please send a copy to Kristin Bakeberg @ firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than March 5th. Thanks for help with this project.
