Magnet Growing Christ's Peace

And a harvest of justice is sown in peace for those who cultivate peace

June 30- July 2, 2011- Indianapolis, Indiana

The Peacemaking Program invites participants to join in the 2011 Peacemaking Conference – Growing Christ’s Peace at the Big Tent – an opportunity to experience the exciting ministries of the PC(USA) at the same time and in the same location.

It is important to note:

The Big Tent conference is scheduled to take place in Indianapolis, Indiana. It is our hope that these plans can be maintained, due to the excellent accommodations and arrangements provided by the Convention & Visitors Association, the hospitality community and local Presbyterians. However, immigration legislation under consideration in Indiana’s state government, may cause the event to be moved. In 2010, the General Assembly instructed its agencies to “refrain from holding national meetings at hotels in those states where travel by immigrant Presbyterians or Presbyterians of color or Hispanic ancestry might subject them to harassment due to legislation similar to Arizona Law SB 1070/HB2162.” We are hopeful that Indiana legislators will reject this legislation quickly, so that our plans can continue, but this is uncertain. Big Tent meeting planners will make a final decision regarding location by May 2, 2011. Until this time, participants are encouraged to register for the conference, but to delay making travel arrangements until the meeting location has been finally determined.

By registering (but not making travel arrangements until the final location is clear), we help demonstrate the impact that  having to move the Big Tent.
