Why should I attend?
Here are some of the reasons why women enjoy attending our Summer Convention/Gathering: “An educational and uplifting experience; workshop topics are timely and presented by well-informed speakers; sisterhood and shared faith and worship; learn about the things that are going on in the ELCA, Women of the ELCA, our Synod and the world; relationship building; fun, refreshment and renewal of the spirit; networking and fellowship time with other women throughout the Synod.”
