Synod Assembly 2017

May 21, 2017 - May 23, 2017

The North/West Lower Michigan Synod Assembly will convene May 21-23, 2017 at Immanuel Lutheran Church and Comfort Inn and Suites Hotel and Conference Center in Mt. Pleasant.

Our Assembly theme is “Freed by God’s Grace,” from the verse “So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36). We will welcome the Reverend Dr. R. Guy Erwin, Bishop of the Southwest California Synod, as our keynote speaker. Bishop Erwin, a member of the Osage Nation, is the first Native American bishop elected to office in the ELCA. He is a noted church historian who has frequently taught courses on Martin Luther and the Lutheran Reformation. Bishop Erwin will address both of these topics during his time with the assembly. Ms. Prairie Rose Seminole will be our Churchwide Representative. She is the ELCA’s Program Director for American Indian Alaska Native Ministries.

The opening Eucharist and first plenary session will be hosted at Immanuel Lutheran Church at 320 S. Bradley Street, in Mt. Pleasant. Check-in and packet pick-up will take place at the Comfort Inn and Suites Conference Center from 3:00-6:00pm. No check-in will be available at Immanuel, so assembly voting members are urged to arrive in Mt. Pleasant early enough to check-in prior to the 6:30pm start of the Assembly at Immanuel.

Registration information is now available on the Assembly page. The final day to register is May 11, 2017. If you are paying online, you must still submit a registration form to the Synod Office.
