During the season of Lent, congregations and individuals have been invited into a period of discernment to help develop a new mission statement for the Central States Synod.  Using this form individuals or small groups in the congregation can give their own feedback to help the visioning team develop this new mission statement.  All comments made on this form, as well as comments and observations made at the conference gatherings will be shared with the team to help us discern what God is calling us to be and do as the Central States Synod.  Thank you for taking the time to participate in this important process.​​​
