Regrettably, due to reasons beyond our control and after extensive consultation with the College of Bishops, we have elected to postpone the scheduled Provincial Synod. We will reschedule the synod for later in the Summer or early Fall. Please do not commit to travel reservations as we are not sure that we will have facilities in Monteagle for a synod later in the year and may need to relocate.
In the meantime, for those that have paid their registration/banquet fees, we intend to keep those in a Provincial Synod account to be used for the rescheduled synod later this year. However, if you need or simply desire a refund, please contact Rev. Jeff Anderson and to make arrangements.
Also, please cancel any hotel reservations that you have made.
Finally, a reminder to please pass this information to any lay persons who were planning to attend the synod and need now to adjust those plans.
As soon as a new schedule and perhaps new location for the synod are obtained, we will post the information online and share it accordingly.
Welcome to the EMC
2014 A.D... a time when people have one thing in common, they are seeking that which only the church can offer. Something they can’t find at a friend’s house, in a bar or even at a police station.
They are seeking the hiding place of David found in Psalm 32:7 which says,
You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.
Historically, the red doors of a church have always been a symbol of sanctuary promising refuge to those in peril. The color red evokes the blood of Jesus Christ, which protects the soul of the wayfaring from spiritual harm. The red doors symbolize the blood of Christ, which is our entry into salvation. They also remind us of the blood of the martyrs, the seed of the church. The red cross on the Episcopal Missionary Church logo symbolizes the same.
Jesus Christ is our refuge. The Episcopal Missionary Church is a body of Anglican Churches where the doors of each parish community is a refuge for all those who enter through them. Each sanctuary is a holy place, there are no outcasts. Our door is open to all!
