The Annual Conference Office would like to have some COVID test kits available in Omaha, Neb., during the Church of the Brethren annual meeting on July 10-14. Just as we want to care for one another by wearing masks, we also do not want to overwhelm the local healthcare system in Omaha.
Many school districts had a supply of test kits that will expire before school resumes this fall. If you work for a school district that is giving away test kits and are able to get some to donate to Annual Conference, that would be greatly appreciated.
Please email the Annual Conference Office at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to let us know how many kits you were able to secure. Kits can then be brought to Omaha or shipped to: Church of the Brethren Annual Conference, 1451 Dundee Ave., Elgin, IL 60120. Kits being shipped to Elgin need to arrive by June 30.
