The Council of Delegates (COD) voted to cancel Synod 2021 and to defer any discussion or decision about the report from the Committee to Articulate a Foundation-Laying Biblical Theology of Human Sexuality until Synod 2022.

This short FAQ may assist with any questions you may have about synod being cancelled.

The synodical Program Committee (the officers who served at synod in 2019) will carefully review matters submitted for the Agenda for Synod 2021 and will decide which matters are essential to be dealt with this year. Similar to 2020, those essential items will be referred to a special, virtual meeting of the COD to be held in June. 

Three significant synodical reports have been made available to churches and classes for study and response by overture or communications prior to their consideration:  (download at crcna.org/SynodResources)

  • Committee to Articulate a Foundation-laying Biblical Theology of Human Sexuality
  • Ecclesiastical Marriage Task Force
