Before Pivot

Read the ways that you can prepare before the event:

Participate in a Show-in-Tell with your Thankoffering container
Create a Thankoffering container by Thursday, February 20 in time for Thursday evening’s regional meetings. Our leadership event ends with a Thankoffering service. Each attendee is asked to contribute a Thankoffering. Go online any time to make a gift
If you would prefer to mail in your Thankoffering, make the check payable to Women of the ELCA, note “WOG0420 Thankoffering” on the memo line, and mail it to:
Women of the ELCA
ELCA Gift Processing Center
PO Box 1809
Merrifield VA 22116-8009.
(All Thankofferings should be sent before the end of February.)

Don’t forget to add dip!
Also, for Thursday evening, your planners are giving you three dip recipes, see below.

Discussion questions to ponder
Consider theses discussion questions for the informal discussion:

  • What are you doing in your synodical organization to connect with your congregational units during the pandemic?
  • What’s working in your clusters or conferences?
  • How are your units engaging with campus ministries?
  • How do you support and engage with women on the roster?

A churchwide executive board member and a churchwide staff member will join each regional conversation to both guide the conversation and to record all the good ideas that will come from answering these questions.
