What Shall We Tell Them?
“We will tell the coming generation the glorious deeds of God, and God’s might, and the wonders that God has done.”
Cancellation of on-site Synod School '20
The Synod School Committee came to the difficult decision to cancel Synod School for 2020 as we know it due to the pandemic.
This is not something we wanted to do but because of our care for each other, our deep desire not to be a source of illness for anyone, and the inability to truly be together as we ordinarily are – singing heartily, laughing together, sharing meals in close proximity, and more – we feel as if this was what we have to do.
Recognizing that we cannot replicate the Synod School experience online, we are not going to try to do so. BUT we are working to put together some special opportunities for a simpler Synod School online for the week of July 27.
We are looking at opportunities for worship, learning, fellowship and fun and will have a better sense of what this looks like by early June. At that point we will post on the website how to participate in the pieces that stir your interest. We certainly won’t have you or your children in front of a screen for 12 hours/day!! Stay tuned for more information.
If you would like to make a donation to the Synod School endowment or have questions about your refund, please contact Deb DeMeester. Thank you for understanding!
Mark your calendars for July 25-30, 2021! We will be graced with the presence of Jill Duffield, editor of Presbyterian Outlook, as our convocation speaker and Samuel Son, manager of diversity and reconciliation at the Presbyterian Mission Agency, as our evening worship leader. Bryce Wiebe will return as the youth convocation speaker.
