Youth Assembly Forms and Other Information

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.

Please download and save files if filling in information electronically. All forms are due May 9.

Because most rostered ministers will be at Synod Assembly on June 10th, we have provided a few options of what to do in place of your regular sermon that Sunday in your congregations:

Live Stream Synod Assembly

The entire weekend of Synod Assembly will be live streamed on the Virginia Synod YouTube Channel. We will be having our own worship service at Synod Assembly (Check the  Guidebook App forr the most up to date event schedule) and you can follow along. This option is only for congregations who have a good internet connection as well as a video projector.

Play Bishop Humphrey’s Video Sermon

If you have a screen and a projector in your church, you can play Bishop Humphrey’s video sermon on Sunday morning. If you are confident in your wifi, you can  play it straight from vimeo.com

You can also download the video and save it to your computer so you don’t have to rely on the internet when showing Bishop Humphrey’s sermon.
Click the download button under the vimeo video and choose “Original” for the highest quality. If you go to your “Downloads” folder of your computer the video should appear and be ready to play or be moved to your preferred location.
To introduce the video you can also  read a short bio about Bishop Humphrey’s.

Read Bishop Humphrey’s Sermon

The text from Bishop Humphrey’s sermon is also available if you would like to ask a volunteer to read his sermon. You can also read a short bio of Bishop Humphrey if you would like to introduce him as the author of the sermon before the reading.
