The Synod deals with questions of doctrine and approves the books of the church. The Synod directs the Church's common activities, administration and finances. Congregation elections are held every four years to fill administrative posts at the local level. align center 2. 30px center (File:Länsi-Suomen läänin vaakuna.svg) Western Finland Länsi-Suomen lääni Västra Finlands län Turku Åbo Tampere align right 1,848,269 align right 74,185 Vaasa (Province of Vaasa), Turku-Pori (Province of Turku and Pori), Central Finland (Province of Central Finland), Häme (Province of Häme) - valign center left 150px thumb Historical province of Finland Proper (borders of the modern provinces, i.e. regions with pink colour) (Image:Historical province of Finland Proper in Finland.png)right 150px (Image:Varsinais-Suomen.vaakuna.svg) '''Finland Proper''', (
