This year’s convocation will focus on The Greatest Commandment. We are fortunate to
have Bishop Scott Johnson and Rev. Heidi Wallace joining us. Bishop Scott will lead us
in worship and a bible study on the selected text, Rev. Heidi will be our keynote speaker.
At the worship service on Friday night, we will be at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. We
are looking for a few volunteers for the service – guitar or keyboard players and a few
people to be pray-ers for the healing part of the service. Please let Pastor Kathy Montira know if you can help.

registration is April 8. If the cost of Convocation is a financial burden for you, contact
