The 2011 General Assembly, July 9-13 in Nashville, Tenn., is about equipping congregations for mission. A new 70-page 2011 General Assembly Planning Guide, arriving in congregations now, advises Disciples about the wide-range of learning opportunities, worship, mission options and celebrations at this year’s Assembly. Copies also have been mailed to those who have attended previous Assemblies.
Please encourage members of your church, your family and others to participate in the Assembly! Resources are available online to help your congregation or organization make the most of the Assembly. You can plan your own special emphasis on General Assembly Preparation Sundays. Suggested Sundays include May 8 or May 15, or any Sunday that best fits your church schedule.
