NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE CHRISTIAN REFORMED CHURCH (CRC) SYNOD, WHICH IS LATER THIS MONTH, THE YEARLY SIT-DOWN RUNS JUNE 5-10.
IT'S A CHANCE FOR DELEGATES FROM THE CHURCH'S 1,000 CONGREGATIONS IN THE
U-S AND CANADA TO EXPLORE ISSUES THAT IMPACT THE FAITH---ISSUES OFTEN RAISED BY THE VARIOUS AGENCIES, COMMISSIONS, COMMITTEES AND TASK FORCES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.
RCA SPOKESPERSON PAUL BOICE NOTES ONE OF THE AGENDA ITEMS DEALS WITH BECOMING AN INCLUSIVE AND MULTI-RACIAL CHURCH, AS MULTI-CULTURALISM BECOMES MORE AND MORE OF A FATOR IN FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS.
THE REFORMED CHURCH IN AMERICA, WITH ITS WORLD HEADQUARTERS IN NEW YORK, CLAIMS ABOUT 300,000 MEMBERS IN THE U-S AND CANADA.
THE TERM SYNOD COMES FROM A 14th CENTURY GREEK TERM MEANING ASSEMBLY OR MEETING.
