June 2020 General Church Assembly


JUNE 18-21, 2020 GC ASSEMBLY

To the Members and Friends of the General Church:

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to attend the 36th General Assembly of the General Church, which will take place in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania on June 18-21, 2020. I am grateful to the staff and members of Bryn Athyn Church for their willingness to host this event.

The date for this Assembly is significant. Many of us know the statement at the end of True Christian Religion describing how the Lord gathered His twelve disciples in the next life and “sent them forth throughout the spiritual world to preach the Gospel that the Lord God Jesus Christ reigns” (n. 791). This took place on June 19, 1770. This Assembly marks the 250th anniversary of this momentous event.

More information about this Assembly, its theme, and the programs that will be offered will be published in the coming months. For now I ask that you mark it on your calendars, and think affirmatively of attending.

~ Rt. Rev. Peter Buss, Jr.
