226th Diocesan Convention Information
226th Diocesan Convention InformationThe 226th Convention of the Diocese of South Carolina will be held March 10-11, 2017 at St. Paul's Church in Summerville.
Each year at this time, the Clergy and other leaders of the Diocese are invited to provide suggestions to the Nominating Committee for those positions to be filled at the upcoming Diocesan Convention, which, this year, will be held March 10-11 in Summerville, SC. We have again expanded the invitation to participate in the process this year to include a larger representation of diocesan leaders and hope you will give prayerful consideration to those God may be calling to serve the Diocese.
The attached letter from the Committee Chairman, the Rev. Karl Burns, contains a nomination form with a list of those positions to be filled at Convention. We're also including a list of who is currently and has recently served to help you in your discernment process.
Please send your suggestions to the Chairman of the Committee, by way of the Diocesan office by December 15th. The Committee will be convening in December to make its final recommendations for nominees well ahead of Convention. Working with the suggestions received, and often by further recruitment, the Committee will recommend a slate of nominations to the Convention.
Thanks in advance for your partnership with us in this important work of discernment.
“Beyond the Walls” Diocese Offering Pre-Convention Workshops, March 11
The Diocese of South Carolina is kicking off its 225th Annual Convention, which will be held at the Church of the Cross, Bluffton, by hosting a series of workshops on Friday, March 11 which are open to the public and which focus on reaching the community outside our church buildings with the theme, “Beyond the Walls.”
The first offering of the day, beginning at 9 a.m. is a three-hour mini-conference on Grandparenting offered by Cavin Harper, founder and director of the Colorado Springs based Christian Grandparenting Network.
Does the Bible have anything to say about the roles of grandparents? Many grandparents today enter this role without any definitive understanding of what a grandparent is supposed to do. Few answers are provided by the Church, workshops, books or other resources, but that is changing. God has been building a movement of intentional, biblical grandparents who are committed to faithfully tell the next generations the truth about God and the Gospel so that they might know, love and serve Christ. That’s what this seminar is about. You will learn what God has to say about this new role many of us are discovering called grandparenting. And you will learn about some very powerful tools grandparents can use to impact the next generations for Christ. If you care about the hearts, minds and souls of your grandchildren, you will want to be part of this unique event. Note there is a $10 fee for this mini-conference.
