As followers of Christ, even in the midst of collective global and personal change, God remains a constant force in our lives. The writer of Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever” and we can trust His foundational presence in our lives. Though Christ doesn’t change, by His Spirit, He changes us to increasingly reflect Him in our lives. Our faith depends on the truth that Christ is our Cornerstone, the very cornerstone on which all other aspects of our lives may be built. When other things in this world may seem confusing, frustrating or overwhelming, Christ is our Peace, Presence and Promise.
May you and your church delegates be renewed once again as you join us for this upcoming 3-day Assembly to celebrate, discern, and contemplate ‘Christ our Cornerstone’ this Spring.

The purpose of assembly is two-fold: To foster deeper and meaningful connection with other affiliated churches and people of the CBWC, and to do the business of the CBWC. Decisions on policy, new church affiliation, board member elections, and budgets are made at assemblies made up of delegates from our churches. The CBWC Volunteer Board of elected representatives bring to these meetings the motions to be discussed and voted on. The decisions made at Assembly then guide the staff and board in the implementation. In addition to doing the business of CBWC, we look forward to learning together with keynote speakers, participating in amazing worship, engaging with resources and in conversations, and exploring vendor booths of various ministries associated with CBWC.
Every church may send one (1) pastor and two (2) delegates to vote, plus one delegate for every 50 members above 100 members. All CBWC members and visitors are welcome as non-voting guests, with registered delegates having the right and privilege to publicly address the Assembly and to vote.
