SYNOD STATED MEETINGS

In addition to sharing chocolate, Stated Meetings are where we enable, equip and connect.

Highlights from the Spring Stated Meeting

Surrounded by the beautiful backdrop of Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center, the Spring 2019 Stated Meeting of the Synod of the Sun was held on March 25-26. A few of the highlights of the meeting:

 

  • Having first been presented and provisionally adopted at the Fall 2018 Stated Meeting, the Vision Plan for a new structure of the Synod was presented before this assembly. With a few changes, the Vision Plan was unanimously adopted (read more on our NEWS page HERE.)
