Online registration for this event is now closed. If you have not already registered, please plan to come early on Saturday and register at the event; please bring your $10 event fee in the form of a check made out to the “Greater Milwaukee Synod.” Walk-in registrants are encouraged to bring a bag lunch, so that they can join their fellow cluster attendees for the 11:30 – 1:00 cluster lunch gatherings. (Box lunches have already been ordered and reserved for attendees who registered by the 5th.)
“Together in Mission” combines elements of last year’s cluster assembly with our former Lead & Learn event.
Our gathering is geared toward congregational leaders, staff, and rostered leaders. It is a time to celebrate that we are together in mission, to engage our questions, to learn from one another, and to dwell in God’s Word. The day will include two workshop slots and time for clusters to meet together over lunch.
8:30 – 9:00 am Gathering & Coffee
9:00 – 9:45 am Dwelling in the Word
10:00 – 11:15 am Workshops – Morning Session
11:30 am – 1:00 pm Cluster Lunch Gatherings
1:15 – 2:30 pm Workshops – Afternoon Session
