Worship, work and witness with Presbyterians and ecumenical partners from across the PCUSA and the world as the 219th G.A. meets
July 3-10, 2010
You can watch live streaming of all General Assembly plenary sessions at the 219th GA website. You’ll find all business to be considered by the G.A. posted at www.pc-biz.org; it will be updated regularly throughout the week. To navigate in PC-Biz, click the “Explorer” tab and then the Search button. Or the “Committees” tab will let you see business items sorted by the G.A. committee that will consider them.
The Presbyterian News Service will report on committee hearings and actions, official and unofficial events, and all plenary actions through dozens of stories posted daily.
Covenant Network at G.A.
Covenant Network board members, staff, and volunteers will be present and active at General Assembly, hosting events and offering support to commissioners and advisory delegates as we work together toward a church as generous and just as God’s grace.
Friday evening, July 2, is the Covenant Network Commissioner Convocation Dinner at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Our speaker will be attorney and CovNet Director Doug Nave; his address is entitled “That’s For Sure.” Candidates for Moderator have been invited to introduce themselves. And dinner conversation will provide an opportunity to think together about how to make a difference in the coming week.
The Covenant Network G.A. Luncheon on Monday, July 5, will feature Gustav Niebuhr, Associate Professor of Religion and the Media at Syracuse University and author of Beyond Tolerance: Searching for Interfaith Understanding in America, speaking on “Tolerance Is a Floor, Not a Ceiling.”
Online ticketing for these events is now closed. However, some tickets are still available through the OGA when you pick up your GA registration. Or you can reserve a place by calling the Covenant Network office, 415-351-2196, no later than Wednesday, June 30.
And while you’re at G.A., come visit us in Booth #300 in the Exhibit Hall.
CovNet’s support for commissioners and advisory delegates, hospitality events, and presence in the Exhibit Hall require lots of volunteers. If you have an hour or two, or want to be involved full-time, or anything in between, we have a job for you. National Organizer Tricia Dykers Koenig has details and would love to hear from you!
