Mark your calendars for the 33rd Annual Pacifica Synod Assembly May 28-30, 2020.
With gratitude for those who have gone before and hope for the future, the ELCA gives thanks to God for the ministry of women. In 2019 and 2020 we celebrate 50 years of Lutheran women being ordained in the United States, 40 years of women of color being ordained, and 10 years of LGBTQIA+ individuals being able to serve freely.
We are church together for the sake of the world. This year, Pacifica Synod and Southwest California Synod will celebrate their synod assemblies together on the campus of our university, California Lutheran. Expect to be encouraged and inspired by ministries we are already doing together and dream of where God is calling us to future endeavors. Congregations and members will register in their respective synods but most sessions and workshops will be united. Join us for this historic event.
Pre-assembly activities will take place on Thursday, May 28.
Business will begin Friday morning, May 29 and conclude on Saturday, May 30 by noon.
Look for more details coming soon.
Information about the joint activities and scheduled events may be found on our joint SWCA and Pacifica Synod Assembly page.
Information specific to Pacifica Synod only will be posted on this page as it becomes available.
