Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9b)
Our final two Fall 2017 Bishop’s Gatherings on the mainland take place this weekend. Both rostered ministers and lay leaders are invited to be with us, with congregational executive committees strongly encouraged to attend. You are welcome to attend the gathering on the date that works best for your schedule and location.*
To assist our host congregations in planning, we strongly encourage congregations or individuals to register using this link for the gathering they plan to attend. Congregations are encouraged to collect names from their members and register the entire group at one time. Individuals may also register on their own. There is NO cost to attend.
All gatherings will begin with the first 45 minutes for Rostered Ministers, followed by a 15 minute break. Lay leaders will then join the group at the second time listed. The remaining Bishop’s Gatherings are listed below:
Saturday, October 21
9:30 a.m. to 12:00 pm (Rostered @ 9:30/All @ 10:30)

Sunday, October 22
