Due to concerns expressed by national, state, and local government officials and healthcare officials, the 2020 Annual Holy Convocation is canceled. We will continue to monitor conditions related to COVID-19 to determine the status of our other events. Additional information will be forthcoming. Please continue to pray for each other and communities across the world who are being impacted by this deadly virus.

FROM: Bishop Edward Smith, Presiding Bishop

SUBJECT: Convocation 2020

Praise the Lord Saints,

I pray that you are blessed and encouraged in the Lord.

Convocation 2020, previously scheduled for June 29 - July 6, 2020, will not convene as previously scheduled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. It is important that we comply with the directives of federal, state, and local governments in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus. 

Although we lament the fact that we cannot convene worship services as usual, I encourage each of you to remain consistent in your walk with God and to keep your faith strong. And remember, the time will come when we will gather again for congregational worship. But until then, while we are unable to assemble together bodily, let us be united spiritually. 

Please continue to pray for the physical and spiritual wellbeing of the saints and for the state of all humanity.
