2020 Synod Assembly

2020 Synod Assembly 

Our synod assembly theme seems particularly fitting in these uncertain days where we are, out of necessity, exploring new and different ways to be church in a time of physical distancing. The RMS Council voted last night to move our five location regional assembly to an all-digital format. The fact we were were already planning to conduct business via ZOOM means we were well-poised to make this adaptation!The council agreed it was important to gather as a synodical community in this way, but knew we needed to make some modifications to the programming. Instead of gathering for two days of business, worship, and programming, we will gather individually via ZOOM for a half-day assembly that will still include many of those elements

 

Date: Saturday, May 2 only
Time: TBD. Approximately 8:30 a.m. - noon
Location: ZOOM

AGENDA

  • Worship and morning prayer
  • Passing the 2020-2021 Budgets
  • Approving updates to the RMS Constitution 
  • State of the Synod from Bishop Gonia
  • Keynote Address and other programming, TDB!

Voting members
Congregations will still need to elect/appoint voting members. Rules state that all participants must be able to communicate in real time, so participants will need to join ZOOM via computer or tablet that has audio and video. We will not be providing a phone number, as we need to be able to see participants who want to speak.

 

Registration
Registration for voting members and visitors will be $25. Registration information can be found here: https://www.rmselca.org/registration
If you have already registered, we will be working in the next few weeks to issue adjusted invoices and/or refunds as needed. Please be patient as we make these adjustments.

 

Nominations
We are seeing now more than ever how important our life together as church - congregations, ministries, and synod- is. A number of opportunities to participate in our life together are available on our boards and committees. The nomination deadline has been extended to March 30. https://www.rmselca.org/elections
