October 5 & 6
Be Informed and participate in the conversation about global decisions
that could impact the future of your church.
This past July, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists released a document entitled, “Regard for and Practice of General Conference Session and General Conference Executive Committee Actions.” This document will be discussed and approved or voted down at the Annual Council to be held in Battle Creek, Michigan, October 11–17, 2018. If approved, there could be far-reaching implications. Due to this, the Loma Linda University Church is setting aside time to inform church members of what is being proposed. This event will offer the opportunity to clarify why the document is being proposed in the first place, to understand the concerns many have, and then, finally, provide time for questions and answers. It should be noted that the document is still under review and has yet to be officially voted for inclusion on the Annual Council agenda. Below is a link to the latest revision of the document. An updated version, if necessary, will be provided as soon as it becomes available.
The leadership of the Loma Linda University Church feels deeply the need for overall church unity as well as respect for overall church leadership, so there was considerable discussion about what might be the best way to facilitate a healthy discussion. This is based on the assumption that in order for any healthy family to remain united when disagreement exists, there needs to be a place for respectful discussion. This is the reason for the October 5–6 weekend meetings. Members of the LLUC community are encouraged to attend and participate with prayer and conversation.
Below is a link to the document, followed by a related frame of reference document.
