Synod 2011





Convention of Synod 2011 is being held at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Buderim from 13-15 May  (site plan).  The theme this year is Based on Psalm 86.11 Teach me your way, O Lord.  The President LCAQD invites all to attend what will be a most informative and important convention.

Reports.  Following on from last year’s synod, reports and other documentation are once again be available on-line through this web site.  (They will be uploaded as soon as they are received) This mean that, all members of the LCAQD, will be able to read the reports and be informed of happenings in the District.   The reports can be downloaded and saved onto your computer, or you may choose to print locally what you may require.  Immanuel will also be providing wireless access points in the Church that should allow you to connect to the local area network and access reports on-line.  In addition, hard copies of reports can be purchased through our on-line ordering system.

Traffic.  The Highway from Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast is a wonderful highway when all is going well.  It is strongly recommended that leave plenty of contingency time to cater for navigating through events that slow traffic flow.

Calculating Delegate Numbers.  Information entered on LAMP has been used  to calculate the number of delegates each Congregation is to send and pay for.  If the number on the drop down list is wrong please contact District Office (after you have checked your LAMP statistics are accurate and up to date)
