I would like to welcome you to our 2017 Synod Assembly at the Omni Colonnade in San Antonio. This year's special speakers, workshops, offering, and worship services all connect well with our theme from 2nd Corinthians 4:7, "Formed & Reformed for Mission."

The offering this year will join the ELCA's Campaign in supporting the four areas of Global Mission: Missionaries, Young Adults in Global Mission, International Women Leaders and Global Ministries. Please check the assembly offering page for guidelines, goals and totals.

Whether you are able to attend the synod assembly or not, materials and reports from the assembly will be available on the assembly website as well as on the Guidebook App.

We look forward to seeing you in San Antonio in May.
Bishop Ray Tiemann
