You are invited to explore these themes at our CPC Annual Meeting in Pendleton, September 22nd – 24th. We will begin with dinner on Friday and end by lunch on Sunday. In between we will tell stories, deepen friendships, do business, take action, follow the Spirit, inquire, contemplate, and inspire.If you have never come to Annual Meeting, you are invited to come experience an edge in yourself, an edge of what church can be. If you always come to Annual Meeting, you are invited to come experience the Well, renewing your sense of what church can be. For everyone, this is a chance to both experiment with and express ourselves as the United Church of Christ in the Central Pacific Conference.For the details, see below.

Got Hospitality Snacks?!

chocolate-chip-cookies-photoOur lunches and dinners are provided during Annual Meeting, but not coffee or snacks during our breaks. We all provide that yummy spread for each other! We are asking folks from every congregation to bring snacks to share for the hospitality breaks such as:  cookies, muffins, bagels, cut fruit, etc. If we all bring something to share, there will be abundantly enough!

Look for an email soon with ways your church can contribute to our hospitality (aka snacks!) at Annual Meeting.
