At the request of many clergy in the Annual Conference, we are excited to announce that the annual Gathering of the Orders will happen via Zoom on Monday, Jan. 25, 2021 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.
As a blessing to all, there is NO registration fee this year. Registration will be available soon and all need to register in order to receive the ZOOM link.
With all that 2020 has thrown at us, we chose Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 “A Time for Everything” as our theme with a particular emphasis on verse 4, “a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.”
As much as we will miss hugs and handshakes, we look forward to seeing familiar faces and welcoming new faces into our assembly. With that in mind, we ask that you honor our fellowship by being as fully present as a video conference will allow. Please have your video camera turned on throughout the meeting (borrow one if you need to).
As with years past, we want our time together to be a blessing for all participants. Please be present by disconnecting from your office, just like you would in years past: no emails or phone calls during our few hours together.
A future email will include the day’s agenda which is designed to give all of us “a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.”
See you soon!
The Planning Team for the 2021 Gathering of the Orders
