Mark your calendars for Aug. 7-10, 2017, when the ELCA will host its first ever Rostered Ministers Gathering in Atlanta. This will be an opportunity for our Rostered Ministers to assemble for worship, education, and fellowship. We will gather under the theme, “On the Way … Together,” using the Emmaus Road story (Luke 24:13-35) to guide our time together.
We will gather in the name of Jesus, the crucified and risen Christ. We will center ourselves each day around Word and Sacrament in worship. We will have opportunities to be in fellowship and to dwell in God’s Word. We will hear from keynote speakers. Then we will be sent forth into this world to love and serve the world in Christ’s name.
Early Registration will open March 1, 2017-May 31, 2017 and will be $245.00 per person (This includes with it coffee breaks and four meals, as well as the keynotes, bible studies, workshops, evening concert, worship, and interaction center)
Regular Registration will be from June 1, 2017-July 23, 2017 and will be $295.00 per person.
More information will come in the fall on the ELCA website and on this Facebook page. Stay Tuned!
There will be a Pre-Gathering for Young Rostered Ministers (20’s and 30’s) from Sunday, August 6 starting at 6:30pm-Monday, August 7 at 4pm. Stay tuned for details. The website for this event, save the date video, and live guidebook app will all go live the end of September-early October.
