2023 Annual Conference Assembly
We are prayerfully preparing for our annual time of worshipful work, centered around the theme “Doing Life Together: Rooted and Grounded in Love,” based on Ephesians 3:16-21. We hope you will plan to join us March 3-4, 2023, at Central Christian School, Kidron, Ohio, for our 54th Ohio Annual Conference Assembly (ACA).
We look forward to gathering as a community of believers to do the work to which God has called us. As we focus especially on the direction and affiliation of Ohio Conference, there will be deliberate time for discernment and spiritual practices. We pray that the format of this ACA will unite us as we gather to follow God’s guidance and direction. We hope that you will be encouraged in your faith as you participate in worshipful work sessions, dynamic worship times, and connecting with others from across the Conference. We also invite you to bless others during Friday night’s worship service where we will be collecting an offering. The money given will be shared between two projects: assisting in the purchase of Bible curriculum for Central Christian School students and the Bangladesh Arsenic Mitigation Project.
Make your plans to attend the assembly as we unite to learn, worship and discern together for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom here in our corner of the world. Please register early! Registration prices will increase after Feb. 10. If you are planning to secure lodging for Friday evening, please note that in most cases the cutoff date for special pricing ends in early February. Please also note that this year, the Pastor Appreciation meal will be prior to the start of ACA.

Donation List for Service Project
At every ACA we invite participants to bless others from the host area by bringing donations. This year we will be collecting items for two local food pantries. Please review the included list of suggested items. There will be a collection box for these items in the registration area.
We hope you will join us as we celebrate God’s Kingdom work and that you will take part in discerning the ongoing mission and ministry we do together.
