Assembly 2020 Information

Synod Assembly 2020! Our annual gathering of congregations and ministries, members and ministers, all of us who call the Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod our home.

It’s a special time when we get together and get to meet, see and hear from leaders and guests from across our synod, and beyond – ELCA Churchwide representatives, as well as other denominations and faith communities.

It’s also a great opportunity to learn, to share, to work, and to celebrate and challenge ourselves around our theme:  WE ARE CHURCH TOGETHER.

Registration for the Assembly will be available soon.

Book a room at Kalahari.
