Delegates, Members, Friends,
Save the dates of October 23 & 24 for our annual CEM Conference. This will be an on-line event again this year due to unknown health liability concerning Covid. We invite you to join our Conference from the safety of your home amongst your family. All are welcome to share together “Encircled in Joyful Celebration”, our Conference theme.
For simplification, once again this will be designated a "special conference" to allow a smooth flow of proceedings in a timely manner to facilitate the business of Mission Centre operations. Our agenda will include inspirational, relational and informative interactions in Zoom breakout rooms. More information will follow about our Global Village interactive sessions to discuss topics of great interest. Link to our CEM webpage cemconference.ca to see the complete schedule and links to familiarize you with your Conference experience.
Saturday Conference activities will commence at 10 am with our Global Village break-out groups followed by lunch and health breaks. The simplified afternoon Conference will begin at 1 p.m. and conclude by 4 p.m. Saturday evening will include an on-line campfire experience starting at 7 p.m. On Sunday, our CEM worship service will partner with Beyond the Walls beginning at 12 noon. President of Seventy John Glaser will be our guest minister for this CEM service.
Our theme for the Conference weekend is "Encircled in Joyful Celebration." Joy transcends Covid! Joy radiates as an inner expression visibly shared. Joy is contagious. Joy is kindred. Joy is memorable. Joy is a spiritual practice. This fulness of Joy encircles those gathered. Be expectant. Practice your Joy and come to share Joy!!

Pastors will receive their congregational packages for delegate selection from the CEM office. Delegates are required to register and have their own individual device to vote (cell phone, computer or tablet). In advance of the Conference, training sessions will take place to familiarize delegates with our voting platform, Poll Everywhere. We will as is customary host pre-legislative discussions prior to the Conference to review information, motions, and budgets.
We look forward to your participation; to seeing your joyful faces, hearing your voices, and engaging together as we are encircled with Spirit in our experience of joy in sacred community.
