Synod Assembly 2015
Registration is open and plans are being made for Synod Assembly 2015 which will take place at Carthage College on May 29 – 30, 2015.
Friday Night with Eddie Lacy
We are very pleased and excited to announce that Eddie Lacy of the Green Bay Packers will join us on Friday evening, May 29 at Carthage College at a special event during Synod Assembly!
Mr. Lacy appears courtesy of Mayfield Sports Marketing and he will speak to our assembly and to the general public about his faith and how that has impacted his life. He was a young teen during Hurricane Katrina 10 years ago when he lost his home. His family bounced around from place to place until they rented a single-wide trailer outside of Baton Rouge where he lived until college. After starting at Alabama and being drafted by the Packers Lacy built a new home for his parents.
The proceeds from this evening will be donated to Outreach for Hope. A reduced price ticket will be offered to Synod Assembly voting members and full time visitors. Tickets are also available to members of your congregation, our synod and the general public. Only 1400 tickets are available. Every ticket holder in attendance on Friday evening will have a chance to be randomly selected to have a picture taken with Mr. Lacy.
Learn more about Eddie Lacy’s visit here.
The number of lay voting members your congregation elects depends on the number of baptized members (not voting or confirmed members) in the congregation. Lay voting members from larger congregations should be as evenly divided between female and male as possible.
All congregations are entitled to at least two Voting Members – one male and one female. Additional Voting Members are allocated to larger congregations as follows:
- Up to 749 baptized members – two Voting Members
- 750 to 1,249 baptized members – three Voting Members
- 1,250 to 1,750 baptized members – four Voting Members
- An additional Voting Member is allocated for each additional 500 baptized members. Voting Members must be divided as equally as possible between men and women.
