In the wake of George Floyd’s Death, our Synod Racial Equity Team Provides Ideas for Congregations
Now that some offices and businesses are cautiously opening, Synod staff will be in the office occasionally, as there is need, but will continue to work remotely when that is workable. As has been the case, calls to the synod office are picked up live, and routed to other staff, whether they are in the office or working remotely. Staff is also easily accessible by email. Meetings that were held in the synod office before the pandemic will continue to be held via Zoom, not in the office. Cleaning protocols will be in place for staff and anyone who needs to stop in. The statistics regarding spread of the virus continue to rise, and practicing caution is still advisable. Other in-person synod events are being evaluated on a case-by-case basis (updated May 26, 2020).
