“Fear not, I am with you.
Be not dismayed,
I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
and help you,
and uphold you…”
~Isaiah 41:10

2024 Annual Conference

Called to be Saints

The theme for this 62nd anniversary conference is Called to be Saints. The conference image is that of the Adoration of the Holy Trinity by Albrecht Dürer, ca. 1511. The painting gives us the opportunity to experience a dazzling vision of the kingdom of heaven from two perspectives. We see both heaven and earth which keeps us mindful that though we live on this earth, we are as Saint Paul describes in his first letter to the Corinthians (1 Cor. 1:2), counted among the saints in heaven through our Baptism and profession of faith in a Triune God.
