The 2022 General Assembly will be online from June 5 until June 8. This virtual gathering provides an opportunity for the church to consider matters affecting the ministry and mission of our denomination. Information will be posted on this page as it becomes available.

The Assembly considers matters affecting the ministry and mission of our denomination. Commissioners, who are responsible for the business of Assembly, will discern and make decisions. At Assembly, commissioners, young adult and student representatives will welcome ecumenical and interfaith guests.

PC-Biz and Zoom

The General Assembly will once again work with PC-Biz, an online platform that was designed to display the business of a General Assembly meeting, and where the interaction of the Assembly’s business will take place. All reports, recommendations and general information will be posted to PC-Biz. Commissioners, Young Adult and Student Representatives, and resource people will connect through Zoom. Directions will be provided during the PC-Biz training sessions.

Schedule of the Assembly

The four day General Assembly will begin on Sunday June 5 at 2:00 pm (et) with Opening Worship and the first sederunt. Each day is set so that no sederunt will start before 9:00 am and conclude around 8:00 pm local time. There will be special events and gatherings offered beyond the times of the sederunts.
