Several thousand people are expected to gather in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday, June 18, for the opening worship service of the 222nd General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The Opening Service will be streamed live. You will be able to reach it on the link above.
The assembly’s opening worship service begins at 11 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time and is scheduled to last about ninety minutes. It will include communion, the commissioning of assembly commissioners and advisory delegates, a sermon by outgoing Moderator Heath Rada, and music by a mass choir, a bell choir, and a contemporary band.
The liturgy for the service—including the words and music of hymns—is available online for download by groups planning to worship in other locations. Congregations joining the service by live stream may want to plan how to participate in the Lord’s Supper as well.
PC-Biz is your access to see and follow the business of a General Assembly meeting. This site contains the history of the business of all assemblies since 2006 as well as the upcoming 222nd assembly that will be held in Portland, Oregon this summer. The site has been completely redesigned, allowing it to be read on computers, tablets and even smart phones in a size and format right for that screen.
PC-Biz includes the most current text of the overtures and other recommendations that have been forwarded to the assembly. Track each item of business as it moves through the assembly meeting, and see whether the recommendation was amended, approved, or disapproved.
