After an unprecedented year of ministry, this year’s Biennial Meeting will be an important time of celebration and looking ahead: Our Future Is Bright! 
A few highlights that will make this time valuable:
  • a message and time of Q&A with Bernard Emerson, the candidate for the District Executive Minister role (filling the place soon-to-be vacated by David Yetter), followed by a vote 
  • presentation and welcoming of several newly affiliating churches! 
  • business matters that reflect our passions and priorities, including the budget, election of teams and officers, and constitution/bylaw revisions
  • *new this year*  There are TWO WAYS TO ATTEND: in-person at Calvary Church in Turlock OR via live-streaming online 
  • all attendees (virtual and in-person) will have the ability to see all the presentations and delegates will vote on the regular business items as well as on Pastor Bernard Emerson as the District Executive Minister candidate
