Can You Stand Another Election?

temp2The election of a Bishop for the Greater Milwaukee Synod is on the agenda of this year’s synod assembly in June. The Synod has scheduled four forums so that everyone has an opportunity to hear from the prospective nominees. Each event will include prayer, brief statements from the prospective nominees, a question/answer time with the opportunity for those attending to submit questions, and some time to mingle over light refreshments with the nominees. Everyone is welcome to attend.

• Thursday, April 7, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., Mount Pleasant Lutheran Church, Racine
• Sunday, April 10, 3:00-5:00 p.m., Christ the King Lutheran Church, Port Washington
• Saturday, April 16, 9:00-11:00 a.m., St. John’s Lutheran Church, Brookfield
• Tuesday, May 3, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Incarnation Lutheran Church, Milwaukee
