Bring the family! Mason and adjoining West Chester Township are prominent suburbs about 30 minutes north of downtown Cincinnati. There are many restaurants and shops in the area. If you would like to see downtown Cincinnati, I suggest arriving at least a day early. Cincinnati is a beautiful city with many family oriented venues. We are happy to provide suggestions; let us know if we can help.

Registration costs for the synod are $65 per person. Our Thursday evening banquet buffet will be at the the popular and elegant Jag’s Restaurant just a few short minutes from the church building and hotel. Costs for the banquet buffet will be $80 per person. Total cost for the synod including the banquet is $145 per person. All fees will be collected during check-in. We are not able to accept credit cards. Only cash or checks are acceptable. Checks must be made payable to Trinity REC.

Everyone attending the synod must register in advance. Please use the following web-form to register: REGISTER NOW. Please have all registration information submitted by September 19, 2021. This is necessary for planning. Using the on-line form helps ensure the transmission of the necessary information and facilitates accurate name/ID tags.
