Every year the Swedenborgian Church of North America hosts a gathering, either remotely or in person, to worship, learn, and govern. Each region (officially Association or Conference) of churches sends delegates from its membership to vote on church business, ordinations, elections, and other matters. Guests are given opportunities to also learn from each other in the form of short lectures or courses, referred to as “mini courses.” There is traditionally a worship service given by the official convention preacher for that year, as well as a memorial service and an ordination service. A list of past convention preachers can be found in the annual Journal, along with the minutes from the business meetings.
Save the date! 2024 Convention will be held June 28 to July 2 in East Lansing, Michigan!
