Synod Assembly 2017
We gathered in assembly, June 2-3, at Parkersburg under the
theme, "Faith Comes from What Is Heard." Our keynoter, The
Rev. Paul Hoffman, a nationally recognized leader in adult
faith formation, introduced the assembly to catechetical
Bible study through presentation and practice. Thus, the
inspiration for our assembly theme (and a great piece of
assembly art by Pr. Jess Felici).
The proceedings are still being edited and the minutes are
not yet approved. When they are, they will be posted. Until
them, you can check out the Pre-Assembly Book of Reports and
a digest of the assembly happenings. Click here for more information.
