Save the date for the 45th Annual Celebration of the Rocky Mountain Conference, June 6-8, 2019, at Two Rivers Convention Center in Grand Junction, Colorado!


We are thrilled to announce the theme for this year's Annual Celebration: Embracing the Spirit of Joy and Light. As we look to the future, our spirits soar with the anticipation of new possibilities! Let us draw together as we continue listening for spirit, strengthening our connection, and tipping towards the enduring good. Registration will open later this month, and we will be sure to let you know when it does.


The schedule is still tentative, but here a few things you can plan on: Registration will begin Thursday afternoon and there will be a fun Welcome Reception on Thursday night. Friday will feature keynote speaker John Dominic Crossan with additional programming throughout the day. Friday night we will have our Celebration Banquet with a presentation of certificates, followed by live music and dancing! On Saturday morning, we will gather at First Congregational Church, Grand Junction for our Administry Business Meeting. Annual Celebration will officially conclude with a powerful worship service with special guest preacher John Dominic Crossan late-morning on Saturday. In addition, First Congregational is hosting their annual Holmgren Lectureship Series featuring John Dominic Crossan Saturday afternoon through Sunday (6/8-6/9). A separate registration will be available through First Congregational later this month.


Registration will open later this month, so keep an eye on your inbox. In the meantime, you don't have to wait to book your hotel room!
