155th Recorded District Conference
September 19 & 20, 2014
at Goshen City Church of the Brethren
The 2014 Northern Indiana District Conference will be at the Goshen City Church of the Brethren, in downtown Goshen, Indiana on September 19 and 20. Our theme will be "Here We Are, Lord" based on hymn 395, "Here I Am, Lord", in Hymnal: A Worship Book and scripture from Isaiah 6. Friday evening's speaker is Jeff Carter, President of Bethany Theological Seminary. His message is entitled, "You are Here". Registration begins at 6 pm on Friday evening and at 8:30 am on Saturday.
There is no registration needed for non-delegates.
Friday evening there will be several Insight Sessions including: "Meet the President" a time of Q&A with Bethany president, Jeff Carter; "Meet the DE" a time of Q&A with the the new district executive, Torin Eikler
Saturday is the business session and all delegates are asked to be present. Decisions about the district's future, future personnel and congregational items will require a delegate vote.
Two offerings will be taken during our time together- District Scholarship Fund and the District Youth Fund. The Scholarship fund assists with costs that are involved in the licensing and ordination processes for ministers. The Youth fund provides some mileage reimbursement for those that volunteer and to cover some costs of youth activities. These funds are not budgeted items and are dependent on gifts.
Child care will be provided during the business session on Saturday for those that have pre-registered.
Meal tickets will be available for pre-purchase through the district office. The box-meal cost is $5.50.
If you'd like to volunteer for any of the many jobs at district conference, or if you have questions or concerns, please contact the district office, 574-773-3149.
