General Synod Workbook

The General Synod Workbook contains the reports and items of business that are being presented to General Synod 2022. Recommendations to the General Synod – items that voting delegates to the General Synod will discuss and vote on – are bold, indented, and preceded by a series of letters and numbers identifying the recommendation (e.g., “EC 22-1”).

Financial Report Notice

In an attempt to keep the workbook to a more manageable length, the audited financial reports are not included in the 2022 General Synod Workbook. These financial reports are available online at As a matter of public record, copies of audited financial reports are always available by calling the treasurer’s office at 616-698-7071 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time), Monday through Friday.
