INVITATION TO MINISTRY
 
On Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. we would like to

 

invite you, the pastor or a congregational leader and

a high school student or college age young adult from

your congregation who you feel has gifts for rostered

ministry to a gathering about leadership in the

church. We will gather at the synod office for dessert

and conversation.

 

Our time together is a way to celebrate and recognize rostered leadership in the ELCA.  By sharing this vision and helping identify gifts in others for ministry, affirmation is given and seeds may be planted for future, rostered leadership in the church. 

 

Please join us.  R.S.V.P. to Sherri at the Northwestern Ohio Synod Office by Monday, June 1st at 419.423.3664 or sherri.wagner@nwos-elca.org


 
SURVEY INVITATION re: PREPARATION FOR 2016 BISHOP'S ELECTION and CALL
 

  

 

Have you taken the Online Survey, In Preparation for the Election of the Bishop of the Northwestern Ohio Synod in May 2016?   click here for survey https://surveys.elca.org/scripts/rws5.pl?FORM=NWOHSB


As many of you may know, Bishop Marcus Lohrmann has announced he will not be available for reelection. Consequently, in May of 2016 the Assembly will be electing a new bishop for the Northwestern Ohio Synod.


Part of the Synod Profile Task Force's responsibility is to ask everyone where we believe God is leading us forward together. What is God's preferred and promised future for our synod? As a result we have created an online survey that we are asking you to fill out. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes.


Please go to http://nwos-elca.org/ and click on the Synod Profile Task Force on-line survey. 


 
 

 

 

LUTHER READING CHALLENGE
 
I'm writing to invite you and your congregation to join the Luther Reading Challenge!

www.lutherreadingchallenge.org

It's a free online community for people to read and discuss Martin Luther's theological writings from now until October 2017. We hope to create a global, interconfessional conversation about the meaning of the Reformation for us today.

More than 1000 people have already joined! Lively discussions are already underway concerning the 95 Theses and other early writings of Luther's.

We hope you'll take part in this new initiative of the Institute for Ecumenical Research in Strasbourg, heading back to our 16th-century roots to find a way toward Christian unity in the 21st century.

Grace & peace,

Rev. Dr. Sarah Hinlicky Wilson
Assistant Research Professor
Institute for Ecumenical Research
