Bishop Warner H. Brown, Jr. invites all the Orders to gather with him at Mt. Hermon Retreat Center, November 15-17, for "Bridging the Covenantal Divide" – "a time of retreat, learning, and strengthening relationships."
It is by tradition and the encouragement of the Discipline that this annual gathering takes place.
This year, those attending will spend some time exploring their similarities and differences, and how those things impact the ways in which ministry happens. There also will be continued development of connectional strengths, as they "build a shared vision" of their future and prepare for doing ministry in changing times.
On line registration is open now (you may pay on line at the time of registration, or mail in your check later).
Click on the Registrations tab on the Home Page of the Conference website at cnumc.org to register for the 2010 Gathering of the Orders.
Early Bird registration ends July 31st and the deadline to register is November 1, 2010.
