The Assembly was moved from May 2 due to the impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic requiring large gatherings to be canceled.  First Christian Church, Lansing will host the day long event, beginning with registration and gathering at 9:30 am. 

Theme: “All Creation is Sacred”
Scripture: Colossians 1:15-16

Guest presentations will be offered by the Christian Church Foundation, Poor People’s Campaign, and Green Chalice, with a closing worship and communion service.
