During a called meeting of the Executive Board yesterday, reports were heard from Synod Officers and the President of Bonclarken regarding concerns about the June meeting of the General Synod. These concerns centered on the social distancing and mask requirements in effect in North Carolina.
After hearing the discussion, a motion was passed as follows,
That the Executive Board recommends to the Moderator that the 2021 Synod be moved from Bonclarken to Columbia, SC.
The Moderator has acted on this recommendation and has moved the 2021 Synod from Bonclarken Conference Center to First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina, June 8-10.
Many Executive Board members expressed that while these concerns are valid, they regret moving Synod away from Bonclarken.
