A meeting affirming support for the Worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Church will take place in the Upper Columbia Conference on May 20, 2017. Make plans to attend!
Affirmation Sabbath originated in conversations that arose between members of the Upper Columbia Conference Lay-Advisory Committee in March 2016, in the context of disregard by some North American Division church leaders for the voted decisions of the 2015 General Conference in Session. The eventual result was Affirmation Sabbath.
Who is Behind World Church Affirmation Sabbath?
The World Church Affirmation Sabbath Committee of Laypeople of the Upper Columbia Conference (WCASC for short) is composed of laypersons who are members in regular standing in Upper Columbia Conference churches and who support the Seventh-day Adventist world church. In Upper Columbia Conference, Affirmation Sabbath meetings are voted by church boards and held by local churches in liason with WCASC.
World Church Affirmation Sabbath is
- a gathering of laypeople
- by region
- within a Conference
to build up the Church. Laypeople combine in fellowship and participate in brief, interactive lay-presented talks designed to equip and to bless the Conference. Meetings uplift Christ and support the world church.
Fulcrum7 thinks this is a great idea to support one another, and express gratitude for the worldwide Advent Message that we share. We are members of a world-wide Movement, not an embryonic rebellious fragment of that Movement.
"Be not drunk with wine, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Ephesians 5:19-20).
