RCA General Synod 2021 Recap

November 17, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


The 2021 General Synod of the Reformed Church in America was exciting and productive. After three years’ of discussions, and with pain and prayers, the Synod approved a way forward from some of its battles over human sexuality. There were also discussions over education, race, missions, anti-racism, and other aspects of being church together.

You’re invited to join people from across the RCA—those who were there and those who weren’t—to discuss and debrief what happened at this important General Synod, and to reflect on the promise and challenges facing the denomination as we move forward, on Wednesday, 17 November, 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm EST. We will be gathering via Zoom, and will be led by a panel of people who were there and will share various perspectives. There will also be plenty of time for everyone to discuss.
