The Following Annual Meeting Resources Are Provided for Our Congregations:

Annual Meeting Synod Visitors
Would you like to help your congregation learn about all of the ways they are making a difference for the world because of their partnership with the ELCA?

Invite a synod annual meeting visitor to join your congregation the day of your meeting and it might just be the best meeting you've ever had.

The visitor might preach, join you in worship, act as a reader, help serve communion, etc. and then bring a brief greeting and thank you to your congregation for your partnership in ministry during your annual meeting. If you would like a visitor, please make your request as soon as possible to aid in scheduling. Please call the synod office at 608-270-0201 or contact the synod receptionist with the following information:

* Date and Time of Annual Meeting
* Time of Worship Service(s)
* How You'd Like Someone Involved
(see suggestions above)
* Average Attendance At Your Annual Meeting

* Message from ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton
* Devotional materials to begin your annual meeting,
   including a hymn and responsive prayer
* Brief explanations of ELCA churchwide ministries funded
  by your congregation's mission support
* Scored and offset spine for ease in inserting and
  stapling annual report materials
