Help make your General Assembly hopes a reality!
Those of you who have been part of the Covenant Network a long time – longer than me! – know that one of its signature contributions to the church’s life is its presence at General Assembly. Under the leadership of our national organizer Tricia Dykers Koenig, our work to resource and connect commissioners as they discern the best direction for the church has helped bring about real change. Our meals and educational opportunities are essential to the kind of thoughtful, faith-filled, theologically-grounded dialogue that are so critical at this moment
in the life of the church.
But this massive operation is incredibly expensive. This year, subsidizing our meal events alone (the cost is even higher than the ticket price) will be a major, over-and-above expense. The exhibit hall adds cost. Housing for those who will facilitate many of these efforts...
it all adds up!
A gift of $1000 would just about cover the extra costs of our Monday luncheon featuring
Mark Achtemeier making a biblical case for marriage for all. A gift of $3000 (or 30 gifts of $100) would subsidize our commissioner convocation dinner, a critical event for reaching those who will be making the week’s important decisions. A gift of $5000 would provide truly foundational support for our connecting and resourcing operation, including a substantial presence in assembly committee work and special outreach efforts to commissioners and advisory delegates.
You can make a difference — maybe the difference that opens the blessing of marriage in the church
to all God’s people.
Will you help?
