Annual Conference

April 24, 2021 - 9:30am to 3:00pm (Eastern time)

We invite you to come join us on Zoom for this year's conference, “I Am Doing A New Thing!”, presented by Grace Communion Cleveland.

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
