URCNA Synod 2012

Synod 2012 • June 11th–15th • Nyack College

(Last updated July 16, 2012)

How good and pleasant is the sight
When brethren make it their delight
To dwell in blest accord;
Such love is like anointing oil
That consecrates for holy toil
The servants of the Lord.

A synod is a church meeting.  Every two or three years, each congregation within the United Reformed Churches in North America sends two delegates (ministers and/or elders) to discuss and vote on issues pertaining to our federation.

The 2012 synod of the URCNA was held on June 11-15 at Nyack College in Nyack, New York.  Since many of the items that came before Synod 2012 pertained directly to the music of our churches, URC Psalmody closely followed this meeting.  Although synod’s work is now complete, here is the list of related URC Psalmody articles for your continued reference.
