2019 is the Thirty Second Assembly of the South Carolina Synod – ELCA and the 194th meeting of the Lutheran Church in South Carolina. The 2019 Assembly will include several items of business for our consideration, including the election of a Vice President for Synod Council using the Ecclesiastical process and the presentation of Nominations for other various offices and committees.
At this Assembly we will also look forward to welcoming our Companions from the Japanese Evangelical Lutheran Church as our guests. We plan to share in Worship, Bible Conversations, Mission Moments, and a Keynote Presentation. We will sing together at Beer & Hymns. We will work together at Lunch & Learn when we consider the upcoming ELCA vote on Ordination as the entrance Rite for Deacons, and at Dinner when we will consider the needs of the South Carolina Synod as we approach the election of a new Bishop in 2020.
We have two Special Focus times planned for this Assembly. Friday afternoon everyone will have an opportunity to watch a movie together and join in discussion about being good neighbors. Saturday morning attendees will be able to attend two workshops on Resourcing Congregations.
