Nomination Form

Due to the large number of elections at the assembly this year as well as the bishop election, we are encouraging members to wait until next year to submit resolutions.  Resolutions from our 2019 assembly will still be able to reach the 2019 churchwide assembly.  If you have questions please contact Rich McLeer at
