We are excited to announce the Rostered Minister Equipping Event for 2022!  Join SEPA Synod Rostered Ministers for a “Choose-Your-Own-Adventure” convocation, intended to help you reimagine, renew, and rejoice.  This event features a keynote speech by our own Bishop, alongside opportunities to engage with online and in-person workshops presented by Lena Glickman, Brandi Miller, and Dale Selover, across topics of spiritual direction, self-care, storytelling, and more.  Opportunities for fellowship, worship, good food, prayer, time with the Bishop, hiking and nature walks, knitting, meditation, and more will also be available.  Whether you’d rather spend more time in workshops or with colleagues, you can build your own experience from the offerings presented.  Come and see!

If you are interested in staying overnight in the vicinity, you may contact United Lutheran Seminary (717-338-3000) or the Chestnut Hill Hotel (215-242-5905) for accommodations of your choosing.  The cost of the rooms or hotel will not be covered by the synod.
 
We are creating this event for in-person or online participation.  For the in-person event, masking and testing will be required, except when eating.  
 
A complete schedule will be available in the coming weeks, with workshop titles and summaries.  Zoom Q&A sessions will be held on October 3 at 11am and 7pm.  Join the sessions at this link.
