Fall is an exciting season for events! We recently featured the upcoming Region 6 ELCA Networks for Mission Event on this blog. This week, Region 3 gets the spotlight. If you are living in Minnesota, North Dakota or South Dakota, this event is for you!

The Region 3 Networks for Mission Event will focus on the theme We are Church Together and will feature Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton as keynote presenter.

The event will take place from November 13-15, 2014 in St. Cloud, Minnesota. On-site check-in will open at 4:00pm on Thursday and the event will conclude at 3:00pm on Saturday. The event will be at Holiday Inn and Suites on Thursday and Friday, and will move to Bethlehem Lutheran Church on Saturday.

Through large group sessions, skill workshops and strategic sharing with participating ELCA ministries and networks, you can return to your congregation and community re-energized and ready to better coordinate and collaborate for mission and ministry in the midst of a changing church.

Register now!
