Convention during a pandemic?
When life’s rhythms are changed and our normal securities threatened, opportunity knocks. We become open to God and one another in fresh ways. We remember where our greatest treasure lies. We redouble our efforts to invest in the commitments that enable us to live wisely and well.
We are hoping to shine a light in this time of seclusion, depression and anxiety. We have seen political, racial and social turmoil and we believe in the power of God and that he has directed us as his people to love one another.
We know that many people will want or need to stay home this year. We hope that some people will be able to join us in person. We are planning this convention for you! Whether at home or here with us, you are welcome to participate with us.
This information has been compiles as of November 2020 and is subject to change. We will follow all reasonable and necessary precautions to help keep everyone safe. If you are uncomfortable to attned in-person please make alternate plans to join us online.
We know you are getting all the medical information you need from other sources. We want to be a help to your soul. We will be the loving community who walks through this season with you. We pray that the resources provided below will help you decide how you will participate in this FACC. God is at work in this messy and mysterious time and we will find that good together.

Please review this page if you are planning to join us in-person. If for any reason at all, you will not be joining us in person, please know that you are as much a part of this convention as anyone else.
We have been planning this convention with you in mind.
Thinking About Attending in Person?
We do not feel it is practical to require everyone in attendance to get a COVID test before attending this FACC. Keep this in mind if deciding to attend or not attend in person.
Many of us may have been vaccinated by the time the convention takes place and there is the possibility that many people will still be waiting to get vaccinated. We will not require that all attendees will be vaccinated. Please keep this in mind if deciding to attend or not attend in person.
Please stay home.
If you have any symptoms as defined by the CDC, please stay home or in your accommodations and watch our stream online.
Yes it is. We are planning to stream everything so please know that you will not be missing out on any of the content we are planning to provide.
