As we now live into a “new normal” with COVID-19, “shelter in place” orders, and the desire to actually share the peace with one another, I wanted to let you know that our Synod Assembly scheduled for May has been postponed. The Synod Executive Committee met Tuesday night to support a postponement for sometime this fall.
We are working with the Synod Assembly Planning Committee, the Fresno Convention Center, and the Doubletree Hotel to see when there are viable dates most likely in the fall. There is a possibility the Assembly may occur in another part of our Synod – again, this is a work in progress and I wanted to let you, our congregations, know this information.
While there will be questions on the postponement of our Assembly, I ask for your patience and prayers as the Synod Staff and Synod Assembly Planning Committee work out the details.
Our world awakes each day to something new and different – we may be fearful of the events which surround us but we are people who trust in God’s guidance and love.
I thank you for being Church Together!
