2018 Synod Assembly

2018 Nebraska Synod Assembly: Building on the Foundation will be held May 31- June 2, 2018 at the Younes Conference Center in Kearney.

"For we are God’s servants, working together; you are God’s field, God’s building. 10According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building on it. Each builder must choose with care how to build on it." 
"For no one can lay any foundation other than the one that has been laid; that foundation is Jesus Christ."      -1 Cor 3:9-11


We are excited to have you join us at the 2018 NE Synod Assembly.  As we gather in assembly to elect a Bishop you will be participating in building the foundation for the future of the Nebraska Synod. 

All worship centers, synod serving arms, and organizations joining together at the Synod Assembly on May 31- June 2, 2018 are invited to bring a “wood block” to build the foundation of a cross at the assembly.

Your “wood block” should be an 8-inch-long piece of 2 by 4 that is painted, written on, and decorated so that it represents who you are as a valued part of the Nebraska Synod.  Use your creativity to show who you are through your “wood block”. 

We need to have uniformity in our “wood blocks” so please do not exceed the 8-inch-long piece of 2 by 4 and keep all sides as smooth as possible so that the foundation we will be building is sturdy and strong.

If you have questions about your “wood block”, please feel free to contact the Nebraska Synod Office at office@nebraskasynod.org.


Please check back for schedule and additional information.
