Dear Brothers and Sisters and Friends of the Covenant Brethren Church,
Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior. We were so looking forward to seeing many of you in two weeks at Fairmont for the 2nd Annual Meeting of the Covenant Brethren Church. However, new cases of variants of the COVID-19 virus have been on a rapid rise in many areas, particularly in Tennessee and West Virginia. We have been monitoring this situation for several weeks.
So, due to increased concerns of COVID-19, and out of basic caution, we must tell you with great sadness that the 2021 Annual Meeting and Worship Conference of the Covenant Brethren Church, originally scheduled for September 10-11, 2021 at Fairmont, West Virginia, has been POSTPONED until early summer 2022. We will be announcing this date later in the fall.
Many of you already registered for the Annual Meeting. We are providing you with two options:
- You may receive a full refund of your registration fee by emailing the CBC office at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address by September 15. We will process those refunds as soon as possible.
- Or, you may allow your registration fee to be applied to the Annual Meeting registration next year. If we don’t hear from you by September 15, we will automatically follow this option.
If you have made hotel reservations, please contact your hotel directly to cancel your reservations immediately.
We will conduct an online election of Executive Board members and will send an email link to the election page for all CBC congregational delegates. Delegates will receive this link on or about September 13. The link will be open for 5 days only. If you do not receive this link, please call or email the CBC office. All other business and reports will be held over until 2022.
We will contact you as soon as we have a date certain for the Annual Meeting next year. We will also publish this information on our website and Facebook page. Please be in prayer for your CBC Executive Board as we make the decisions necessary for that.
If you have any questions, please contact any of the CBC Executive Board. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Sincerely, in Christ,
The CBC Executive Board
