Fall Gathering‎ > ‎

Resolutions

It is that time of year again to start preparing for the Florida-Bahamas Synod Women of the ELCA Fall Gathering in November! One part of the Business Meetings that will occur, is the submission and reading of resolutions, and it is not too late to get your submissions in!

By submitting a resolution at the Fall Gathering, you bring concerns and issues that are important to you, your congregational unit, and/or your faith community as a whole to the attention of the women in attendance. They in turn are made aware of these topics, discuss them, vote on them, and then bring them back to their faith communities. This is how one idea can have a ripple effect to improve our world.

Instructions for writing a resolution, a blank resolution form, and a short sample are available on the FL-BA SWO’s website at www.flwelca.com. You still have time to draft a resolution, get your Congregational Unit’s approval, and submit before the October 15, 2015 deadline.

Resolutions may be e-mailed to the SWO President Phyllis Wade at secretary@htlc.gccoxmail.com.
