Free Event at General Assembly! Children Welcome!

If you are attending the General Assembly in Orlando, we hope to see you!  On Sunday morning, you and your family are invited to join us at Pershing Avenue Christian Church at 8:30a.m. for our worship service celebration. Children are welcome to attend, as worship will include a children's sermon and childcare will be provided. 

Our preachers for the morning are very special guests: 

Lorenzo Mota King, Foods Resource Bank, from the Dominican Republic

Samantha Nicodemus, South Joplin Christian Church, from Joplin, Missouri

Vy Nguyen, Church World Service, from California

Abdel Direny, IMA World Health, from Haiti

Moo Kho Paw, Prosperity Candle, from Burma

Our friends at Green Chalice and Equal Exchange are also partnering with us to host a Fair Trade Coffee Hour with delicious fair trade coffee and tea from our very own Disciples Coffee Project.

Pershing Avenue Christian Church is located on 2000 E. Pershing Ave in Orlando. Shuttle buses will arrive at the West Concourse between Lobbies D-F of the convention center at 7:00 AM and depart for Pershing Avenue at 7:15am.  Buses will return attendees to the convention center at 10:15 and 10:45, following the Coffee Hour, providing options for attendees who want to return to the convention center for Assembly Sunday School or Meals. 

This event is free but the ordering of tickets is required (However, actual tickets will NOT be issued, we just need a count of attendees through this system). Tickets are available through the General Assembly website's online registration feature. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office, weekofcompassion@woc.disciples.org or (317) 713-2442.  

We are looking forward to connecting with all of you joining us at Assembly.  Thanks be to the God who calls us to put our Compassion into Action!
