Central College hosts the RCA General Synod

June 11, 2013

The General Synod of the Reformed Church in America will take place June 20-25 on Central College’s campus. Hundreds of RCA members will meet in H.S. Kuyper Fieldhouse to plan, worship and discuss.

During the synod, members will be building school kits with World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide. The school kits will include backpacks full of school supplies that will be given to children from low-income families. Approximately 500 packs will be donated to Aurora Heights Elementary School in Newton and 500 will go abroad that will also include a hygiene kit.

The synod will consist of 10 plenary sessions, along with a presentation and workshop with Ed Stetzer, president of LifeWay Research, on “Engaging All God’s People in Mission.” Central previously hosted the synod in 2001, 2006 and 2007.
