The 139th Annual Assembly of the West Virginia Council of Churches will look a bit different this year. Instead of a one-day event, the Council will host a series of Thursday online sessions, beginning with worship on October 1 at 12:00 noon. Other sessions include:
October 8 – Community Reentry in the Midst of Coronavirus
October 15 – Faith, Scouting, and Foster Care
October 22 – Reinhold Neibuhr and the Nature of Evil
October 29 – Dismantling Racism and the Church
All sessions take place at 12:00 p.m.

2020 Public Policy Forum
The 2020 West Virginia Council of Churches Public Policy Forum will be held on October 13 at 2:00 p.m. via Zoom.
Organizations are invited to present policy issues for consideration by the Council for inclusion in the 2021 Public Policy Issue Priorities booklet.
