ATTENTION ALL VOTING MEMBERS OF THE 2019 SYNOD ASSEMBLY
Special Meeting of the 2019 Synod Assembly
Date: November 2, 2019
Registration begins at 9:00 am (coffee and snacks will be served)
Location: Our Savior’s Lutheran Church – 550 Lincoln Drive, Sun Prairie
YOUR ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED AND YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN REGISTERED.
We will be voting on the 2020-2021 Synod Spending Plan.
Here are some of the answers to questions we are receiving in the office:
- If you are a rostered leader serving in a different congregation from the one you were serving in May, you will now represent the congregation you are currently serving.
- If you are a rostered leader, you may not substitute a lay voting member for yourself.
- If you are newly called rostered leader since May, you are eligible to attend as a voting member.
In the interest of simplifying the registration process, all those who were registered as voting members of the May 2019 Synod Assembly are automatically registered for the November 2 assembly. If you are sending a substitute, your pastor will need to fill out a substitution form. The form was emailed to all rostered leaders on Oct. 16 and is due back to the synod office by October 28, you can also download the substitution form HERE. Again, no registration is necessary.
We will start at 10:00 am and adjourn between 12:30 and 1:00 pm. Lunch will be on your own after we dismiss the assembly; however, heavy snacks will be provided in the morning.
Agenda includes worship, short program, spending plan discussion, and voting.
We are grateful to Our Savior’s in Sun Prairie for hosting this event. If you have any questions about who can attend, contact Deacon Vicki Hanrahan in the synod office at 608/270-0201.
