Pastors and Convention Delegates,

Please find below some important information regarding the upcoming Convention being held on June 14 at the Church of God (Holiness) in El Dorado Springs, Missouri.

Convention begins at 9:00 a.m. However, beginning at 8:00 a complimentary breakfast will be served. The church will have fresh, homemade cinnamon rolls and hot coffee ready for everyone as they come into the church. The church also has a coffee shop onsite. For those who are really serious about their coffee, Pastor Trussell has informed us that staff will be on hand to make any type of latte, iced coffee, cappuccino, or fruit smoothies. The church has a large foyer with a coffee/breakfast area. We encourage you to come early so that you can eat and visit in plenty of time before Convention begins promptly at 9:00 in the Sanctuary.

The wonderful folks at the El Dorado Springs COGH are planning an amazing noon meal that will include 2 meats – pulled pork and fried chicken. They will also have the appropriate sides and 3 different desserts to choose from. Beverages will include tea and water. Again, this is a complimentary meal, though a love offering is encouraged.

There will be a short afternoon break. The church is planning to have a light snack available – there will be soda and some type of trail mix for everyone to munch on if they so desire. They will try to keep bottled water available throughout the day. As Pastor Joe says, this is “just in case some people would think our good Eldo water is not good.” 🙂

We do need Pastors and Convention delegates to confirm their participation in General Convention by submitting the delegate forms as soon as possible. We need to be fair to the cooks at the church in El Dorado Springs and give them an accurate headcount so they don’t under-prepare or over-prepare.

Additionally, the Strategic Planning Committee is inviting all delegates to a dinner at the church at 5:30 that evening. Below you will find a letter (and flyer) from Jack Smith that outlines more information about the Strategic Planning session of Convention and details about the dinner.
