Online registration for the 40th General Assembly opens on Wednesday, July 15. The Assembly meets September 17–18 at Hope Church in suburban Memphis, Tenn. The theme of this year’s annual meeting is “Always,” based on the Apostle Paul’s declaration in 2 Corinthians 2:14 that in Jesus, God “always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of Him everywhere.”
Due to changes wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Assembly will be “business only” and convene on Thursday, September 17, at 10:30 a.m. and conclude on Friday afternoon. Among the business items to be considered are election of a new Stated Clerk and numerous recommendations from the EPC’s permanent committees.
Worship service speakers include Case Thorp, Moderator of the 39th General Assembly, and Carolyn Poteet, Lead Pastor of Mt. Lebanon Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, Pa. In addition, D.A. Carson, noted theologian and co-founder of The Gospel Coalition, will speak following the on-site dinner on Thursday.
