Gathering as People of the Promise

April 30 – May 1, 2021
Virtual Assembly

 

Registration will open on March 1, 2021

An agenda is currently being prepared. We respectfully request that you hold open Friday, April 30th (late afternoon, evening) and Saturday, May 1 (8am to 4pm) while we work to finalize these details.

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 should be as evenly divided between female and male as possible.

  • All congregations may elect at least two lay voting members of the Synod Assembly.
  • Congregations having 750 to 1,249 baptized members may elect a third lay voting member. Thereafter an additional lay voting member may be added for each additional 500 baptized members of the congregation (e.g. at 1,250 members, 1,750 members, etc.).
  • All congregations may add one voting member to the number allotted if that additional member is a youth or young adult (aged 30 or under when elected).

Use the chart below to see your congregation’s number of voting members. (All rostered ministers are voting members.) Baptized membership numbers with a * are from the 2019 congregational reports. We will update this as 2020 reports are received.
