Synod Council Documents


Preparing for Synod Assembly 2022

An in-depth explanation of Memorials and Resolutions and how to draft one to be presented to the floor at the 2022 Synod Assembly.

Read directly from the Sierra Pacific Synod standing rules of order for the Synod Assembly regarding resolutions and memorials. A great way to read our standing rules explicitly. 


Before you submit your memorial or resolution, we ask you to spend some time reflecting on the potential resource impact your request might require.


​Memorials and resolutions are one way that this church addresses broad policy issues or important issues for God’s mission in the world.
