The 2011 Annual Conference of the Church of the Brethren will be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on July 2-6, 2011.
The theme statement is
Gifted with Promise: Extending Jesus’ TableIn Gifted with Promise: Extending Jesus’ Table, Brethren encounter a challenging assignment: (1) to discover afresh their giftedness with Gospel and (2) to envision their role in loving the world enough to share the physical and spiritual benefit of the Gospel. This theme connects our common interests in spirituality and service, practice and prayer. We extend the table with promised resources of grace and love. The theme calls us to mission and evangelism where we not only share and invite but we cultivate discipleship as we offer tangible resources of food, clothing, medical care, and more. At the table, we share, we receive, and we learn.
