Join us for our 2021 annual Atlantic Mission Region Convocation
October 22 & 23
Holy Cross Evangelical Lutheran Church
696 Johnson Road
The Fullness of God’s Worship is the theme for this year’s Convocation. We will hear plenary sessions from the Rev. Dr. Eric Riesen (president, North American Lutheran Seminary); the Rev. Christopher Porter (Lebanon Lutheran Church, Lebanon Church, VA); the Rev. Jay Jackson and Ryan McAllister (Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church, Joppa, MD); and Lara Bhasin (M.Div. student at the NALS). We will be discussing and experiencing different styles of worship throughout our two days together.
This Convocation will be held in person, but virtual attendance will be offered to those who would prefer.
Friday at the Convocation will also feature our annual AMR business meeting in which we will elect a NEW Regional Dean. There will be a time for each individual Mission District to meet together for fellowship. And Mary Bates will be there with her panel truck so we can “Stuff the Truck” for Disaster Response. Please see the Disaster Response needs list here:
Both days there will be good fellowship, good food, opportunities to learn and experience, and a mutual coming together of the saints for refreshment and WORSHIP. We will decide the winner of our Atlantic Mission Region logo design contest! Friday’s lunch & supper, and Saturday’s lunch are included for all in-person attendees.
There will be ample time to check out all the congregation displays and visit with NALC ministry partners and other vendors that will be present at our Convocation!
