To all those who helped in preparing for the Synod and Bishop Grote’s Episcopal visit. We are grateful to you who planted flowers and worked to make the building and property more attractive, who researched historical materials and prepared displays, who worked on the gifts for Synod attendees, and a host of other things. We could not have had such a meaningful Synod without your hard work and dedication.
