2015 NC Council of Churches Legislative Seminar
April 14, 2015 @ 9:15 am - 3:30 pmFree
Join NCCC on April 14 at Greenwood Forest Baptist Church in Cary for the Council’s 2015 Legislative Seminar. Held every two years, the Seminar equips people of faith with the information they need to be advocates on issues before the NC General Assembly.
Registration with workshop options is available here. The cost is $15 for students, $25 for all others, and that includes a light breakfast underwritten by Partners in Health and Wholeness, and a boxed lunch prepared by the Interfaith Food Shuttle’s Catering with a Cause. Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m; the Rev. Dr. David Forbes, Dean of the Shaw Divinity School, will lead worship at 9:15 a.m.; and three workshop sessions will follow. Closing worship will be led by Greenwood Forest pastor the Rev. Ben Boswell.
The seminar is an opportunity for collaboration and planning for continued advocacy. Given the state’s current leadership, it is a process that will take time, but the better informed we are, the more effectively we can help shape policy to make NC a place where everyone is welcome and valued.
