Gather at the Table events are being hosted throughout our Synod. Check this link to learn more and find out which one fits your schedule.
Gather at the Table is a series of fall stewardship gatherings for people throughout the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin. When you Gather at the Table, the discussion won’t be just about money. It will be about Stewardship. Join in these gatherings to explore how we can learn from one another and support each other as we become better stewards of all the good gifts God has given us.
Bishop Mary will gather us at the table of our Lord and will offer a question and answer session with the guest speakers. The guest speakers come from three congregations in our synod who are stewarding their gifts in wonderful ways. They will lift up faith and gratitude practices and challenge you to put them into action. In addition, best practices and results from our synod-wide stewardship survey will be shared.
