First EAC Convocation, February 25th, 2017
The first Convocation of the Emmanuel Anglican Communion will be held February 24-25 in Ft Pierce, Florida at St. Peter's Church on Jenkins Rd. just off Hwy 70. The House of Bishops will meet Friday evening from 6-10 PM for their business meeting and the Open Convocation will begin at 9:30 AM Saturday morning with various ministry reports and opportunities, input from the Laity as well as a visionary message from the Presiding Bishop. We will conclude with a Celebration of the Holy Eucharist. All are welcome to attend.
As our Communion is young (less than one year) we are still in a formation process. Scritpture tells us to "...despise not small beginnings." As we are widely disbursed throughout the world and, as with many ministries, we are of limited financial resource, our physical numbers at the Saturday gathering may be less than we'd like. We gather nonetheless and celebrate the vision God has given the EAC to show the world the reality of "God With Us." In a time of questionable physical security and moral decline, we have been given the mission to stand on God's Word as the only certainty in an uncertain society.
We look forward to greeting any persons interested in becoming a part of this Family of Christ. For those that can not be there but may be interested you are encouraged to contact us via email or snail mail. If you can not be present we covet your prayers for God's guidance and direction as we strive to do His will. We pray... Come Holy Spirit and speak to our hearts... in Jesus Name. Amen.
Archbishop Edward J. Skiba, OSB
