Congregational Visit Information

Bishop and her Associates are pleased to visit congregations on particular Sundays. Along with preaching in worship, they are available to teach a class, lead a Bible study, meet with youth, have a question-and-answer time or lead a mission conversation.

Please use this form to share any details about the visit.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PROVIDE ALL INFORMATION AT LEAST 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO THE VISIT.

Arrival time is 30 minutes-one hour before the first event for the day. This gives opportunity to discuss how worship will work, a chance to talk to the organist and/or choir director and worship assistants to discuss various aspects of the service, e.g. Holy Communion, or any last minute details that happen on the day of the visit. If at all possible, please attach a copy of the bulletin to this form.

While visits to congregations come as a part of our positions on the synod staff, there are times when a congregation asks whether an honorarium of any kind is appropriate. Certainly one is not necessary. However, if the congregation wishes to consider that, please send a check to the synod office and mark it "Bishop's Emergency Fund." Those funds are designated for the bishop to assist clergy families and others who might need some temporary financial assistance.

Either Bishop, Bishop Associate or Bishop's Administrative Assistant will be in touch with you after receiving the visit information.






Please select the Bishop or Associate you requested above.
