Synod Assembly - Saint Paul Area Synod, ELCA

Synod Assembly

The Saint Paul Synod Assembly gathers annually in the springtime. As the highest legislative authority of the synod, delegates from congregations engage in conversation and vote on resolutions, synod council and committee nominations, in addition to other synod business.


2017 Synod Assembly

On Friday, May 19 & Saturday, May 20, we will gather at Prince of Peace Lutheran in Burnsville for 2017 Synod Assembly, highlighting the theme "We Are Lutheran: Among Our Neighbors". Special guests, inspiring worship, and breakout groups will help us to learn more about the many neighbors whose lives enrich our own, and whom we are called to love and serve. This year's voter allocation chart can be found here (PDF).



Registration for this year's synod assembly will begin March 13. Early bird reduced registration fees will end April 3.



The deadline to submit resolutions is April 7, 2017. This year, we have put together a Guide to Writing an Effective Resolution (PDF). Please reference this before you write, and call the synod office with any questions.
