North Carolina regional assembly

A NEW WAY TO ASSEMBLE IN NORTH CAROLINA
You have surely heard that old tagline often used in reference to Gotham and its five boroughs: New York, New York – the city so nice they named it twice. Well, the same type of sentiment may be applied to the upcoming Regional Assembly of the Christian Church in North Carolina (CCNC) – so fabulous that one day is not enough.
This year, the region will be dividing its Assembly into two parts – A and B – both of which are being offered virtually this year. Participants will gather around the theme: Telling Our Stories – Vital Conversations.
Jose Martinez (Associate Minister of New Church Ministry) will be attending Assembly A.
Assembly A: Telling Our Stories April 23rd at 9:30 AM
It has been a tough couple of years for congregations, ministers, and laypeople of the CCNC. In many, many ways, we have not been able to be church and do ministry in the ways that have been most familiar to us. But God has been with us, stirring us to try new things and venture in new directions. In short, the wilderness in which we have been traveling has not been devoid of grace, and we have stories to tell about what these experiences have meant to us. We will start the day with Rev. Chris Furr leading us to recognize and claim this remarkable, divine presence, and we will have the opportunity to hear some other brief voices from our region telling some of their stories. There will be the mix of music and celebration, business and deliberation, and a closing communion service led by Rev. Bishop Valerie Melvin (North Carolina Regional Minister) to wrap up our storytelling.
