ABCCPC ANNUAL GATHERING
We bring you greetings from the American Baptist Churches of the Central Pacific Coast (ABCCPC). We pray that each of you and your churches are doing well.
As you know this year we will be hosting the American Baptist Churches USA Biennial Mission Summit at the Portland Convention Center, June 30-July 2. We are also scheduled to have the ABCCPC Regional Annual Gathering this year also in Oregon. Instead of our usual gathering in October, we will be having a shorten Annual Gathering on Thursday, June 29, 9:30 am to 2 pm, at The First Baptist Church (Portland) Community Center (half block west of the main church building on Taylor Street). There is free parking at the church lot on the same block.
For those who plan on coming to Portland, the night before, on Wednesday, June 28, we will be having a “pre-Annual Gathering” dinner at 6:30 pm, followed by a 7:30 pm program featuring our International Missionaries at the same location.
Wednesday, June 28, 6:30 dinner, 7:30-9 pm will feature Rev. Ingrid Roldan Roman, IM missionary to Panama. She directs a tutoring and feeding program for elementary and high school students who have fallen behind in their studies. The program is held at Ingrid’s house, and many of the students come from a nearby slum that is without running water and electricity, and where the houses have mud floors and walls made from bamboo. She works with the students and their relatives in evangelism, social development and pastoral care.
Thursday, June 29, 9:30 am to 2 pm
- Featuring ABCCPC Business Meeting
- Vision for ABCCPC from our Executive Minister
- Introduction of new churches and new pastors
- Reports from our partners (ABSW, Redwood Glen, Arrah Wanna, etc.)
We hope you can join us for our Annual Gathering!
– Rev. Steve Bils
NEW PARKING/WINDOW STICKERS
We have new window stickers for your cars. If you need one, please contact Keith. Please be sure to get a sticker if you volunteer and park in the church lot during the week (it is recommended but not necessary for Sundays). The old sticker will no longer be valid as of November 1, 2016. The number available is limited. Please note we will no longer provide window stickers for your temporary transportation: a dated parking pass is available at the front desk if you’re not driving your regular car or only have occasional need. These stickers and cards are only good for the FBC lot (on 12th and Salmon); park in one of the volunteer spots along the north wall. If you have questions on allowable parking, please contact Keith.
