Regional Assembly

Event Date: October 6, 2018

 

Dear Ohio Disciples:

As you know, this past Saturday, July 28, the Regional Church Council (RCC) met for a called meeting at Gender Road Christian Church, to take action on a 6-part recommendation.  You will received the full text of those recommendations within a few days.

One of the recommendations (#2) approved by the RCC is to hold our Regional Assembly sometime between the dates of September 22 and November 10 of 2018.  A second recommendation (#3) approved is to suspend the current search for a new regional minister pending further review and revisions of our regional structure and organization.”

Earlier this year, when the Regional Minister Search Committee convened, we wanted to give them as much time as possible this calendar year to do their work, before reporting to the regional assembly on their progress.  Therefore, a later date was envisioned for the regional assembly, possibly November 10. With the recommendation to suspend the search committee’s work now approved, an earlier date seems more advantageous so the RCC and regional church can focus on the review and revisions of our regional structure and organization.  Therefore…

THE REGIONAL ASSEMBLY OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN OHIO WILL BE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6TH, FROM 10AM UNTIL 4PM

AT GENDER ROAD CHRISTIAN CHURCH
5336 GENDER ROAD, CANAL WINCHESTER, OH   

The Regional Assembly Resolution is available for download HERE, and additional registration information will be available soon.

Grace and peace to you all,

John M. Richardson
Interim Regional Pastor
