From the WND Synod newsletter: Join your synod staff for chili and conversation at a congregation near you! During the months of November and December, Bishop Mark and the synod staff have been traveling throughout the synod cooking chili and chicken noodle soup and engaging in Bible study and conversation with you . . .the members of our synod congregations. We hope you’ll join us at the last event at First Lutheran Church in Bismarck on Thursday, December 9th. We will begin serving the meal at 5:45 PM and follow that up with Bible study and discussion about what is happening within our church and what it means to be a church in mission with Christ.
