The Virginia Synod Assembly is an annual gathering of rostered leaders and elected voting members of congregations that gather together to experience and express what it means to be called to be Church together as the Body of Christ – as we care for necessary items of business, engage in fellowship, participate in and experience corporate worship, and are inspired by the theme and speakers.

The Virginia Synod Youth Assembly is the annual meeting of the Virginia Synod Lutheran Youth Organization, to which all Lutheran Youth in Virginia automatically belong. The Virginia Synod LYO is also the group in Virginia that relates to the ELCA Youth Organization. The Youth Assembly meets at the same time as the Synod Main Assembly each year on the Roanoke College Campus. Youth will need to be excused from school on Friday, June 8th.
