The South Dakota Synod invites you to make a statement of intent to South Dakota and churchwide ministries for 2017. As you consider your commitment, please note this invitation models the spiritual practices of regular reflection and faithful response to God’s abundant grace. We encourage each expression of the church (households, congregations and synods) to engage in these practices regularly. In this way we move beyond ourselves to do God’s work together. You can find stories of our work together in Stories Of Faith In Action 2016 (pdf).
To submit your congregation’s 2016 Statement of Intent, please complete the online form below or click here to download the PDF.
Mission Support is the portion of weekly offerings that your congregation shares with synodical and churchwide ministries for God’s mission beyond the local congregation. Other terms with similar meaning include “proportionate giving,” “tithing” or “benevolence.”
