Welcome to the National Assembly (formerly Gathering)! Normally we would greet you with a smile, handshake, and a warm welcome to a particular church. But this is not yet normal, so we welcome you with a smile and a friendly virtual welcome!!
National Assembly is an annual opportunity for us, as a family of churches, to gather together, build relationships and learn how we are progressing toward our goals. This year we have three sessions to work at these goals:
Thursday evening (5-7 pm PST) – Breakout Sessions on four key topics: the new bylaws, the new Collaborative Unified Strategic Plan (CUSP), the revision to the Confession of Faith Article 8: Christian Baptism, and our finances. These are 45-minute interactive sessions, and we will repeat each session twice. Registered participants can sign up for two topics.
Friday evening (5-7 pm PST) – Worship, Sharing, and Celebration.
Saturday (8am-2pm PST) – Business Session when we review formal reports, discuss and decide on recommendations, and elect representatives and leaders.Registration is required to receive a link for this event. Go to http://na.mennonitebrethren.ca/ to view the reports and to register.
