2018 Southwest California Synod Assembly

Love & Serve: God, Neighbor, Creation

The 2018 Southwest California Synod Assembly will take place at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks on Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2 with the theme “Love & Serve: God, Neighbor, Creation.”

The Synod Assembly is the highest legislative authority of the synod. In addition to conducting the business of the synod, voting members and visitors gather for worship, presentations and workshops designed to support the ministry we do together as a synod.

Voting members serve on behalf of all the people of the Southwest California Synod. To be a voting member is to be entrusted by your congregation to make decisions for the well-being of our synod and the whole church. Voting members of the 2018 Synod Assembly will be called upon to elect Synod Council members, voting members for the 2019 ELCA Churchwide Assembly, and nominees for the ELCA Churchwide Council, in addition to voting on the synod budget and resolutions.
