2017 Annual Fall Gatherings
for the Worshipping Communities
of the South-Central Synod of WI - ELCA

Bishop Mary FroilandTraditionally the focus of these annual gatherings has been on stewardship, but they have become so much more. They provide opportunities for connecting on a deeper level as neighbors and as co-workers in the kingdom of God.

We come together to reflect on God’s Word for our life and work together, hear about what we are doing together in the synod, build relationships between neighboring congregations, share stewardship strategies, and discern new directions and opportunities God may be calling us to.

Together there will be 6 gatherings throughout the synod. You are free to attend any gathering that is convenient.

Join us. It will be better with you there!
~ Bishop Mary Froiland

What to Expect

* Bishop Mary will ground our time together in scripture. The text for our gathering is Acts 8:26-40, if you want to read ahead. We will reflect together on how we live in to and out of our baptismal identity.

* As Christ’s church, we have been entrusted with telling God’s story, a story that is quite different than the current cultural narrative we usually hear. Synod staff will share parts of God’s story, supported by your mission support offerings, which are being told in our communities.

* Each congregation will receive a packet that includes your personal trend report, as well as a mission support intent letter for 2018-19.

* We will have time to share ideas and opportunities for ministry with each other, and build deeper connections.
