The 2020 Western District Synod will be held November 19-22 at Mt. Morris with the theme, “Being the Church: Holy Spirit Empowered.” Our theme hymn for this synod is “We Have Received Christ Jesus” which was written by Jack Hicks.
Heather Vacek, ThD, will be our keynote speaker this synod. She serves as Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. She is also a professor of church history, tackling such topics as suffering and hope in the Christian tradition, religion and politics in the United States, and many others.
Thanks to our synod planning committee (Amy Andersen, Karen Buchholz, Rev. Judy Ganz, Sylvie Hauser, Rev. Jim Hicks, Rev. Bruce Nelson, Megan Smock, Rev. Aden Ward, and Taylor Wickert) for their continuing work.
