Synod Assembly and Bishop Election

June 6th, 2017 by admin

Sunday, June 11th , Virginia Lutherans gathered at Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia for Synod Assembly elected the Rev. Bob Humphrey of Muhlenberg, Harrisonburg to be the next Synod Bishop. 

We lift up prayers of thanksgiving for the faithful service of Bishop Jim Mauney and his family, and praise God for the past 18 years of ministry together.

We lift Bishop-elect Humphrey and his family. Grant him the wisdom, strength, grace, compassion, sense of humor, and patience necessary to serve.  

We lift up Synod Council and newly elected Council and committee members.

We lift up the ELCA as together we serve God and neighbor throughout the world.

We ask God to bless the Virginia Synod and to grant every thing that our Synod may need as we begin this new chapter.

In the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.  Amen
