In order to process
offerings correctly, please:
  • Make checks payable to the SWT Synod. Checks not made payable to the synod will be returned to the sender.
  • Note the conference name and "Assembly Offering" on the check or remittance slip. Checks without the conference name or "Assembly Offering" will not count toward the conference goal and will be counted toward general mission support.
  • Select "Assembly Offering" if giving online.
Thank you for attending the 2017 Synod Assembly at the Omni Colonnade in San Antonio. This year's special speakers, workshops, offering, and worship services all connected well with our theme from 2nd Corinthians 4:7, "Formed & Reformed for Mission."

The offering this year joins the ELCA's Campaign in supporting the four areas of Global Church: Missionaries, Young Adults in Global Mission, International Women Leaders and Global Ministries. Please see guidelines, goals and totals listed below. Offerings will be gathered through August 2017.

Whether you were able to attend the synod assembly or not, you can view materials and reports from the assembly via the Guidebook App or links on this page below. If you have any questions or need additional information from the assembly, please contact
