Annual Council will be held in Battle Creek, Michigan, October 11-17, 2018. The LEAD Conference will take place Thursday, October 11, through Sabbath, October 13, at the Adventist Heritage Village. The business sessions will begin on Sunday, October 14, at 8:00 a.m., in the Kellogg Arena and business, will conclude at 12:00 p.m. on the afternoon of October 17.

As we prepare for these meetings where we will look back on our Church’s history, let us not forget the way the Lord has led us. As we contemplate the future, pray for renewed confidence in God’s plan for His Church.

“Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for He is faithful that promised.” Hebrews 10:23 (KJV)
