Click Here to Register Today!
Northwest Yearly Meeting's Annual Sessions are available for anyone at the local church level that would like to participate.  We encourage people to participate in the Missions Dinner from their home on Sunday evening!  The first evening session of the conference with the key note address from Dr. Jim Le Shana, our general superintendent.  On Monday and Tuesday there will be a time for devotions in the morning, business as worship, workshops, and an evening session where we will hear from Dr. Joseph Clair.  It is our hope that this online format will be an opportunity for people that would otherwise not be able to attend in person, to be a participant. 

We ask that everyone register for Annual Sessions this year.  There is no charge for registration although you will be given an opportunity to contribute to help with conference costs.  There will be a variety of ways for you to participate, some parts will look familiar and other parts will be streamlined for this online experience.  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with additional information about this year's event and how to access each of the sessions to participate. 

We plan to use Zoom and YouTube as our main platforms for Annual Sessions.  Be on the lookout for training that we will offer before Annual Sessions to help people feel more comfortable with this online format.  There will also be a "help desk" available during the sessions if you have additional questions.
Upcoming Training Opportunities
Monday, July 13th | 11:00 am | A training for anyone that hopes to participate in the zoom business meetings.  This is especially applicable to any representative. 
*another of the same training will be offered in the evening on Tuesday.
