2020 Assembly Registration Information

Assembly Postponement

UPDATE: In light of the most recent guidance from the CDC and the churchwide office, we have made the decision to postpone Synod Assembly. In our view an event of that size will not be appropriate in early May. We are in consultation about next steps. In the meantime, we are suspending registration for the Assembly.

How is your church pouring itself out for the community? What opportunities are you seeing in your neighborhood? Mark your calendar for God’s mission Friday and Saturday, May 1 and 2. The 2020 SEPA Synod Assembly will focus on “Acuity: Seeing Mission Possibilities.”

Regular business will be conducted on Friday and Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon programs will feature conversations with leaders who are connecting with their communities, activities and service opportunities, and inspiring worship with a mass choir that you are invited to join. Saturday afternoon’s activities are open to all, not just congregational voting members, at a small cost to cover meals and materials.

“It is not the church that has a mission of salvation to fulfill in the world; it is the mission of the Son and the Spirit through the Father that includes the church.” – Jurgen Moltmann

“To be missional means that a church realizes it exists to join Jesus in God’s mission in the power of the Spirit.” – Ed Stetzer

“The church exists…for what we sometimes call “mission”: to announce to the world that Jesus is its Lord.” – N.T. Wright
