Synod Bylaws

Under ConstructionTime for Some Work on this Page

It's been a long, long time since this page got an overhaul. Expect some work on it over the next month or so. There is some new information on this page now, but there is also some stuff that needs to move to the archives. We hope to eventually bring you a proper site map too.

Contact Info & Communications Page

We've moved all the contact info and links to things like the DEM Facebook page to the new Contact Info & Communications page.

Education for Clergy & Laity

We've done some reorganizing, gathering all the stuff related to educational offerings for both clergy (continuing ed) and laity on one page. Visit our Education page to explore what's been offered at the moment.

COVID-19 Reopening Page

When the Feds issued the shelter in place recommendations, we launched our COVID-19 page. That page has grown into multiple pages over the course of the pandemic, and the most recent to be added is a page focused exclusively on reopening. To visit the reopening page, click here.

Bishop's Page Added

A page has been added with a bio of the Bishop as well as links to various things he's written from pastorals to book reviews. Click here to visit the Bishop's Page.

Polity Page

It came up at Synod Council whether there was a master list for all the committee appointees. Yes and no. An unofficial list is maintained, but we've never had a public list for ad hoc committee appointees. Standing committees have been listed in the Pre-Assembly Bulletin of Reports, but that quickly becomes outdated. So, we've set up a polity page on which all the committees are listed (along with their membership). We'll do our best to keep this current. Click here to check it out.
