Planners of the 2019 Church of the Brethren National Older Adult Conference (NOAC) have unveiled the logo for the event, highlighting the conference theme, “Reaching … across generations, beyond differences, through conflict … into joy,” based on Romans 15:7. The flowing blue and green logo was designed by Brethren graphic artist Debbie Noffsinger.
The conference will take place Sept. 2-6, 2019, at the Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center near Waynesville, N.C. The NOAC web page, www.brethren.org/NOAC, will go live with 2019 information in January. Registration opens in April.
Christy Waltersdorff, pastor of York Center Church of the Brethren in Lombard, Ill., is serving as NOAC 2019 coordinator. Serving with her on the planning team are Rex Miller, Pat Roberts, Karen Dillon, Glenn Bollinger, Paula Ziegler Ulrich, and Church of the Brethren staff members Stan Dueck and Josh Brockway.
