The Tenth Triennial Convention of Women of the ELCA is coming up: July 11-13, 2017, in Minneapolis, Minn. More than 300 voting members – nominated and elected by women in congregational and special units like yours – will come together in our organization’s highest legislative gathering to discuss, deliberate and decide on issues that will shape our future.
Our Tenth Triennial Convention – our 30th anniversary – is an occasion to celebrate. We’ve come this far by faith, remembering the good things God has done – with us and through us – in the past. Who can begin to imagine what wonderful things God has in mind for us for the future? What will the Tenth Triennial Convention raise up for us to help promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world?
Convention offerings are a way to express our joyful hope and confidence in what God has in mind for us. Your generous offering will be divided equally between the ongoing ministries of our churchwide organization and the PV for Phebe project that is bringing dependable solar power to Phebe Hospital in Liberia. The PV for Phebe project was begun by the Northeastern Minnesota Synodical Women’s Organization and was lifted up as a churchwide movement by the Ninth Triennial Convention. Your convention offering will make a real difference in people’s lives!
Will you and the women of your congregational unit prayerfully consider making a generous triennial convention offering today? Simply make out your unit’s check to Women of the ELCA, download and fill in this copy of Form B and send the form and the check to:
