“Embracing Grace to be Agents of Grace”

April 30-May 1, 2021

Business Session

On Friday, April 30th, 1-5PM, Dr. Sunberg will call our Assembly to order using ZOOM technology. Delegates from the local churches will be given protected ZOOM access to log into the Assembly, have full privileges of the floor, and can carry out secure voting, all within the ZOOM platform.

In addition, there will be a limited number of persons gathered in person at The Bridge Church in Long Island. This will be a combination of delegates and non-delegates, clergy and laity. These will be members of the District Advisory Board, the Board of Ministry, leaders of our auxiliaries NYI, NMI, and SDMI, as well as the staff needed to oversee the event. All CDC protocols and state/county safety guidelines will be observed.

Delegates and Alternates will be asked to REGISTER through ZOOM (instructions will come through an email). Once registered, all communication will go directly to them via email.

Two training sessions will be offered the week before the District Assembly

Monday, April 26th, NOON-12:30   –   Meeting ID: 86880698491

Tuesday, April 27th, 7:00 PM – 7:30   –   Meeting ID: 83435977847

Ordination Service

The ordination service will be held on Saturday, May 1st at 10 AM. Due to limited seating that complies with COVID restrictions, only the Ordinands, their immediate family, their Senior Pastor (or the ordained elder praying for them) will receive invites. Information about this will be conveyed directly with each of them by Rev. Dr. Jeff Barker, our Director of Clergy and Congregational Life.

Details are still being worked out, and we will communicate several times over the coming weeks. If you have specific questions, feel free to email Rev. Bruce Barnard, Director of Operations and Finance.
