With the retirement of Bishop Wollersheim, a new synodical bishop will be elected at the 2016 Synod Assembly.
The new Bishop will be installed at 10:00 am on Saturday, September 24, 2016 at First Lutheran Church, 225 South Third Street, Rockford, IL (815-962-6691). Parking for the event and a reception after the service will be held at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 3300 Rural Street, Rockford, IL (815-399-0531). Shuttles will transport guests to and from the service at First.
This will be a very important event for our synod, and it is hoped that many from the synod will be able to be a part of this historical event. Therefore please save this date and make plans to attend.
