Welcome to the Zumbro Lutheran Church Annual Meeting-2

Our Annual Meeting will resume on Feb. 25 at 9:35am in the gym on the lowest level of the church. You do not need to register to attend in-person. You do not need to have attended or registered to participate online for the Feb. 4 meeting to attend or register to participate online for the Feb. 25 meeting.

If you registered to participate online for the Feb. 4 meeting and you want to participate online again for the Feb. 25 meeting, you must register again.

The Continuation of the Annual Meeting’s Agenda will include the Approval of the 2024 Budget and the Election of Council President, Vice-President and At-Large Members, as well as Election of the 2025 Nominating Committee.

We do not anticipate having an update from the Bishop regarding the Bishop's Committee’s work in time for this meeting. If you have questions about the progress of the Bishop’s work we encourage you to reach out to the Synod office at office@semnsynod.org

The Continuation of the Annual Meeting on Feb. 25 will NOT be livestreamed on our website. Nonmembers can attend the meeting in-person or register online for the ZOOM link; however, they will not be able to speak on the floor or vote.
