224th General Assembly (2020)
June 20-27, 2020 in Baltimore, MD
“A Movement Beyond Institution”
Based on Romans 12:2
Registration for the 224th General Assembly (2020)
of the PC(USA) delayed again
The continued spread of the Coronavirus has once again prompted officials with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to take action to ensure the health and safety of employees, board and committee members and others traveling on behalf of the church, as well as determine the best course of action for the upcoming 224th General Assembly.
Last week, the Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, II, Stated Clerk of the General Assembly of the PC(USA), announced that registration for this year’s gathering would be delayed until March 24. However, after meeting with church leaders on Wednesday, the decision was made to delay registration until no later than April 20th.
“Each day the number of infected persons continues to rise across the U.S. and the world. On average, more than 2,500 Presbyterians and representatives of other Christian denominations and faith groups attend GA in any given year,” Nelson said. “We need to look at the best way to conduct the assembly, while protecting those attending from exposure to this frustrating and unpredictable virus.”
