Southeast Michigan Synod Assembly
Saturday, May 11 from 9am-5pm
Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Ida, MI
Hope Lutheran Church, as a congregation of the Southeast Michigan (SEMI) Synod, can send two members as delegates, in addition to our pastors, to attend the annual SEMI Synod Assembly along with representatives from other congregations in our synod. Per Hope’s constitution, SPC (Strategic Planning Council) appoints delegates to attend as representatives of our congregation. SPC is looking for members who would be interested in attending to represent our congregation and relay synod news from the Assembly back to Hope. If you are interested in attending as a representative of Hope or would like to make a recommendation, please contact SPC here.
