SW Synod Educational Gathering
May 14 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm America/Bonney_Lake
This spring’s in-person Synod Educational Gatherings are now open for registration. ALL LAY AND ROSTERED MEMBERS ARE INVITED. We’ll have worship and lunch together, plus two workshops sessions on a wide variety of topics all under the theme “Grow…Together”, plus a keynote speaker.
The keynote will be by Joey Ager, Bishop’s Associate/Dir for Evangelical Mission, on “Sacred Encounter” – How do we grow together as congregations, communities and society? During this time, we’ll consider the central importance of sacred encounter – with others, ourselves, the land and God – as a foundational practice of being community and of growing in new directions. Saturday, May 14th at St Marks Lutheran Church by the Narrows, Tacoma
