Southeastern Synod Youth and Young Adult Ministry

 

It’s the time of year for preparation and submission of the 2018 Rostered Ministers Report.  Again this year, we are providing a Southeastern Synod Rostered Ministers Report which can be easily accessed from the link here or on the synod website. The synod report form applies to pastors or deacons, those under call, on leave or disability, or retired. Remember, if you are retired and wish to have voice and vote at the Southeastern Synod Assembly, you must have submitted an annual report to the bishop during the current year. 

Please submit your report by March 1, 2019. Your responses will be sent directly to Bishop Gordy once you click submit at the bottom of the form. If you would like to keep a copy of your report, be sure to save or print a copy before you click submit.

Questions may be directed to Deacon Jeanette Burgess, jburgess@elca-ses.org, or 404-589-1977, extension 232.

 

ALL TENNESSEE 2018

122 youth and adults met November 10 & 11 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hixson, Tennessee for All Tennessee.  During the event youth from across Tennessee gathered to learn more about the "GODISNOWHERE" theme by participating in different activities throughout Saturday afternoon.  Youth looked at where God was through an interactive Stations of the Cross activity, they also got to ask Pastor Ed Myers and Pastor Katherine Museus any question they wanted to ask, they learned about how we can be God's hands in the midst of disasters through the work of Lutheran Disaster Relief and put together hygiene kits for Lutheran World Relief.  To finish out their service that day they moved mulch on to the church's playground.  Worship started with a group of youth from Christ Kiswahili Lutheran Mission leading in song and during the confession participants were invited to take a piece of string to represent their confession and tie it on nails that formed "GODISNOWHERE" - a powerful way to see that God comes to us in the midst of our brokenness and as we communed together we saw God come once again in the body and blood of Christ. Special thanks to the volunteers of Trinity Lutheran Church for their hospitality and meals, as well as the ALL Tennessee planning team for their hard work putting it all together.
