All credentialed pastors within AMC are invited to this gathering at Laurelville Mennonite Church Center on August 5, 2016. Pastor Peer will be meeting starting at 9:30. There will be lunch at a cost of $10.00 per person. Starting at 1:00 p.m. you are invited to participate in a conversation with Ervin Stutzman, Executive Director of MC USA.
The afternoon with Ervin Stutzman will include two blocks of time:
1) An opportunity for Allegheny Conference pastors to share with Ervin “the state of AMC” – offering our perceptions, hopes, dreams, challenges of where things are at within AMC. We will then invite Ervin to share “the state of MC USA” – offering his perceptions, hopes, dreams and challenges of where things stand within MC USA. Opportunity will then be given for dialogue and conversation that surface from this sharing.
2) In the second session, Ervin will be invited to report on some of the topics that Constituency Leadership Council is presently discussing including: the role of CLC as elders of the denomination, conference to conference peer review, covenantal commitments and common expectations within MC USA, and the future of resolutions at denominational gatherings. Time will be given for conversation and feedback on these issues and any other matters pastors would wish to raise.
(We anticipate our two blocks of time will run from 1-2:15 and 2:30-3:45 p.m)
If planning to eat lunch at Laurelville, please let Kathy know in the conference office by July 26 at 814-443-2007 or email@example.com
