Registration Deadline Approaches

Final registration for the 2024 Synod Gathering ends Wednesday, May 15.

May 8, 2024 |

There is one week left to register for the 2024 Synod Gathering at Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory—Thursday, May 30, Friday, May 31, and Saturday, June 1—to gather with Lutherans from all across North Carolina. Registration is open through Wednesday, May 15. Register today!

The Gathering’s theme, from Romans 8:37in all these things WE ARE MORE than victorious through him who loved us—is “We Are More.” Grab a friend and register soon! We are more when you are here.

Five things to know about this year’s Gathering:

  1. It is not a Synod Assembly! You know, the thing when we gather, two from each congregation, to vote on the business of the synod? It’s not that. It is, instead, no business at all…just inspiration, learning, and fellowship.
  2. Each congregation can bring as many people as they like. All are invited—come one, come all!
  3. Come for one day, two days, or all three days. Each day is designed to stand alone AND the three days are tied together by the theme.
  4. Thursday & Friday each will feature a keynote speaker and workshops; Saturday will feature a service project and workshops. On Thursday, the Rev. Dr. Jay Augustine will speak on the theme, and Ian Chester, ELCA Director of Innovation, will speak on Friday. Saturday, we will pack thousands of meals for Rise Against Hunger.
  5. Workshops, workshops, workshops! There are so many opportunities for learning, inspiration, and practice! See the full list of choices. Note that Friday afternoon’s workshops will allow space for various spiritual nourishments.
