A synod convention is not just an opportunity to conduct the business of the church-electing officers, discussing resolutions, hearing reports. Since 1999 LCC conventions have included information sessions and workshops designed to provide delegates with useful information they can take home to their circuit and congregations.
This year six information sessions will focus on LCC's mission activity at home and overseas; the direction of higher education; how LCC's strategic plan impacts local congregations; current theological discussions; innovative ways to connect with your community; and keeping healthy for mission and ministry.
Six additional workshops are part of the Saturday afternoon Lutheran InfoEXPO, a time when delegates and visitors can collect information from LCC's affiliated agencies to take home and discuss. The InfoEXPO workshops are also available to members of Winnipeg area congregations. Topics will include parenting; coping with pop culture; sharing your faith naturally; financial planning; and young adults and church.
