The information provided is a guide and some items do not apply to the Allegheny Synod. If there is a question, please contact the Office of the Bishop for clarification.
Resources for the Allegheny Synod will be posted here in the future. We thank the West Virginia Western Maryland Synod and Bishop Matthew Riegel for their gracious permission to use these resources.
