2018 Synod Assembly


2018 Synod Assembly: For the Life of the World
May 3-5, 2018
Westin Hotel
10600 Westminster Blvd, Westminster, CO 


At a time when conversations in the church tend to focus on survival and sustainability, in light of a future filled with so much uncertainty, it’s more critical than ever that we remember that the Body of Christ exists not for itself but for the sake of the world God so loves. As people of faith, we have been called to new life in Christ so that we may serve as the Spirit’s instruments of hope and healing for every neighbor on our globe as well as for the earth itself. Join our 2018 Rocky Mountain Synod Assembly as we explore what it means to be Christ’s Church Together, for the life of the world.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Cynthia Moe-Lobeda
Dr. Moe-Lobeda is a professor of Theological and Social Ethics at Pacific Lutheran School of Theology.  Her areas of teaching include the ethical dimensions of economic globalization, faith-based resistance to systemic injustice, and the role of Bible in ethics.


Musicians: Tangled Blue
Tangled Blue will once again be joining us as our assembly musicians. Making music together since 2003, Joel and Aimee Pakan have shared their music in congregations, festivals, and youth gatherings around the globe. Currently both Joel and Aimee are Fund for Leaders Scholarship recipients studying at United Lutheran Seminary in Philadelphia.
