Fall Assembly 2015
The 2015 Fall Assembly with Eastern District Conference and Franconia Mennonite Conference will include important discussions and decisions for the future of both groups. Focused on the theme “Built to Build,” the joint assembly will begin with a special worship service on Friday, November 13, 7:00 p.m. at Penn View Christian School.
Worship will include musical sharing from both EDC and FMC musicians and a ministry talks by three different individuals in a TED Talk fashion. Following the service, an ice cream social will allow members from both conferences to mingle and share. Conference leaders from both FMC and EDC will be serving ice cream and Conference Related Ministry groups (CRM’s) will be available to talk during this time. Child care will be available. All EDC and FMC congregation members are encouraged to join in this worship and praise service as both conferences look to build a strong future following Christ and in their mission.
On Saturday, November 14, Conference leaders and delegates will gather to worship and discuss many important ideas to help build and strengthen each conference. The worship scripture will focus on Ephesians 2: 19-22. Worship music will begin at 8:30 a.m. with the joint service at 9:00 a.m. Newly credentialed leaders will be recognized, as well as those who have retired or passed on.
At 10:00 a.m. , conference delegates will meet separately with their leaders in business sessions. The EDC business session will run from 10:00 till 12:00 with a break for lunch. The meeting will continue following lunch until approx. 2:30 p.m. All EDC delegates are strongly encouraged to attend the business sessions, as one of the main decisions to be made will focus on the Re-visioning Transition proposal.
EDC will also be honoring retiring Conference Pastor—Warren Tyson during the business session. Our hope is to have representation from all current EDC congregations at this very significant Fall Assembly. Please register by November 1, 2015 if you are planning to attend.
