Who Is My Neighbor?
NW Washington Synod Gatherings
June 2 at Saint Andrew’s, Bellevue, OR
June 9 at Bethlehem, Marysville
8:30 am – 4:30 pm
In lieu of a traditional Synod Assembly business meeting, this year we will gather for conversation, learning, worship, and engagement around the theme “Who is My Neighbor?” There will be three forum times featuring 16+ topics to help us discover and explore what it means to be a neighbor. There is no limit on the number of attendees per congregation, so we encourage every church in the synod to send as many members as possible. The two events will be nearly identical, so choose the date and location that works best for you.
Forum topics range …
- from global music to earth ministry;
- from congregational hospitality to community partnerships;
- from listening to leadership;
- from human trafficking to being ally and advocate for our neighbors of different color, orientation, economic status, faith, or nationality
More information may be found at www.lutheransnw.org/2018-Synod-Gatherings. Cost is $40/person, and includes materials and lunch. Registration is open now! Sign up anytime April 2 – May 15.
