E-News Archives

Synod News

Synod News is a summary of news especially for those that aren’t online and would prefer a printed version. Please download and print for your retired leaders or congregation members who would benefit from this.

Synod News Spring 2018

Our primary method of communication to the synod is by way of four e-newsletters.

We would love it if Synod E-News were read by every Lutheran in our synod! Read Bishop Smith’s reflection monthly in addition to news from NC Synod congregations, upcoming events, and helpful resources for congregations. (first and third Tuesdays)

Leader E-News targets the leaders of congregations:  pastors and deacons, other staff people, council members. Articles and resources for leadership are included in addition to events for continuing education. (second and fourth Tuesdays)

Special E-News is just as its name indicates—sending special information such as ordination or consecration announcements, death announcements, and occasional messages from the bishop.

Social Justice & Advocacy Ministries News provides timely messages about the efforts of our synod’s Social Justice & Advocacy Ministries Team as well as those of the churchwide organization. (monthly)
