‘Doing Life Together: Rooted and Grounded in Love’ will be Assembly theme

Central Christian School in Kidron will host the 2023 Annual Conference Assembly (ACA) March 3-4. The theme of this year’s gathering will be “Doing Life Together: Rooted and Grounded in Love,” based on Ephesians 3:16-21.

In a letter to delegates, Conference Moderator Ken Sims wrote, “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.”

The first event of ACA, the Pastor Appreciation Meal, will begin at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, March 3. Registration will open at 12:30 p.m., and the first delegate session will begin at 1:30 p.m. ACA will conclude at 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 4, at the end of the final worship session.

In addition to business sessions, ACA will include worship services, prayer time on Saturday morning, times for spiritual disciplines, and displays from church-related agencies.

The registration fee for ACA is $45 per person if received by Feb. 10. After that date, the registration fee increases to $60 per person. There is an additional charge for meals.
