Wednesday, June 23

Participants are encouraged to gather at one of several host sites around the state. Each site will be limited to no more than 50 people. After a year of distance, we want to see each other face-to-face and be in conversation about critical issues facing our church and world. Lunch will be provided by the host church, and the required COVID-19 protocols will be in place. If you will not be fully vaccinated by June 23 and/or are uncomfortable gathering in a group, a virtual option is available. We have many host site options so most people will need to drive an hour or less to get to one, so please, if you can, make the effort to gather in person.
