Communications & News

Communications, News & Information

What Matters in our community: read stories of our ministry together, news updates, invitations to learning and ministry opportunities in the synod. We are currently in the process of re-imagining our synod communication strategy (read more below) and are not currently producing a weekly e-newsletter. More information will be shared throughout the summer of 2022 on our developing strategy for communications moving forward.
