A point of emphasis for this year's Assembly will be table conversation of all present to shape the work of the Church Council in 2012 and beyond.
Focusing our energy on how to build up the "shalom of the city," we will welcome Dr. Michael Trice, Assistant Dean of Ecumenical and Interreligious Dialogue at the School of Theology and Ministry at Seattle University, who will give a short presentation on the gift and challenge for the ecumenical community to "think globally and act locally."
Finally, we will review the budget, elect the Board of Directors, affirm officers of the Board and affirm by-law amendments.
The meeting is open to all interested people of faith. Congregations of one of our fifteen member denominations may send clergy plus two lay representatives to participate in the Assembly as delegates, who vote on the matters under consideration. Additional members may participate in discussion. If you are interested in attending as a delegate, please have your congregation inform us of your delegate status.
