Southern Ohio Synod e-bulletin for the Week of April 24, 2019
Stronger and better together:
Joining Jesus in the restoration of the world!
75% increase in giving is possible! Join the 2019 Stewardship for All Seasons Cohort and see your giving increase too!
GSB FundRaising’s Stewardship for All Seasons has a proven track record in helping congregations grow giving. Our SOS congregations that signed up during assembly are already seeing exciting results. Join the 2019 Cohort today!
Our advocacy day on Tuesday was a great success with nearly 20 legislative office contacts in one day on the importance of investing to guarantee food on the table and a roof over the head of all Ohioans. Will you join us for our next advocacy day on May 14th?
Easter makes it possible, even at the grave, to sing alleluia.
In connection with the observance of the five hundredth anniversary of the Reformation events initiated by the 95 Theses, a distinguished group of African descent Lutheran theologians gathered at the offices of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) to explore and reflect on Luther’s Small Catechism.
It is that time of year--when the annual reports for all rostered ministers should be submitted, as well as Form A and C parochial reports for congregations. We did much better last year getting the reports done and in, but we still have a way to go! Let's shoot for 100% participation!
