Pacific Southwest District Conference: November 9-15, various times
The structure of the Church of the Brethren grows out of a belief that the individuals and congregations within the church are uniquely led by God, but at the same time are dependent upon the gathered community to discern God’s leading more fully.
There are three levels of decision making: the congregation level , the district level, and Annual Conference level.
Districts gather their members once a year to elect a moderator and conduct district business. These meetings also process any business moving from congregations to Annual Conference.
La Verne Church of the Brethren is part of the Pacific Southwest District. This year, District Conference will meet virtually, “on the web,” from November 9-15. The theme is: “Bless’d be the tie that binds.” Based on Psalms 133:1 and the moderator is our own Mary Kay Ogden!
During the business portion of conference you will hear about the work of the district, including recognition of ordinations, status of congregations within our district, budget proposal and leadership appointments.
There will also be times set aside for virtual worship, insight sessions and even a service project!
