On October 7th, 2020 Bishops of the Western Jurisdiction launched Where Love Lives: an engagement campaign designed to celebrate the radical inclusion and the diversity of people engaged in mission throughout the conferences of the WJ. During the past 8 months conferences across the WJ have lifted up the many ways love shows up in our ministries.

In June we will examine Our Commitment to Diversity. The California-Nevada Conference will host 3 webinars and create a pre- recorded Junteenth worship service that local churches of the WJ can use to commemorate the anniversary on June 19th, or at any time during the month of June.

Webinar dates, times, descriptions and registration links are listed below.  California-Nevada looks forward to hosting our WJ family and learning together how we may continue to become the beloved community together.

The Juneteenth worship will be released early June and posted here.
