April 2020 WNCC-LO Meeting

March 28, 2020

Blessings my Sisters and Brothers in Christ!

As you are aware, we are amid a pandemic that has caused a season of caution and concern.  We are in a national emergency as a result of the outbreak of CoronaVIrus Disease 2019. The COVID-19 has caused the rescheduling of all annual conferences in the 2nd Episcopal District.

The WNCC-LO 2020 April meeting is postponed because of the COVID-19.  I am asking that we demonstrate what Scripture teaches us, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

My faith remains strong that God’s steadfastness will bring us through. I believe that the same God who redeemed, delivered, and healed before will continue to do so for us today. Stay encouraged in the One who is still in control and has provided a way for us to be whole. Follow the necessary precautions to be safe and healthy.

Thank you for your willingness to serve!


Penny S. Oliver, President WNCC-LO


Complete Census 2020 Online

Census 2020 is live!  The 2nd District Commission on Social Action has been working really hard to raise awareness about Census 2020. We now need the help of pastors and laity to engage around completing the Census. We want to prevent the undercount of the est. 800,000 Black people that occurred in the last census count.
To Complete Census 2020 online:
1) Log on to
2) Select “Start Questionnaire”
3) Enter their Census ID (found on their mailer) or click “ I do not have a Census ID” to move forward with the questionnaire.
4) Answer all the questions until you get to the Confirmation page!
It takes less than 5 minutes to complete it. Thank you in advance for your assistance on helping us advance this initiative to get our people counted.

Letter of Intent – Delegates to SEDLO Convention

Please read the attachment, carefully, and follow the directives.
As of today we do not know the location of the SEDLO Convention.  The proposed date for the SEDLO Convention is September 24 thru 27, 2020.
This decision was made by the WNCC-LO Executive Board because our last meeting of the conference year is April 2020.
If you have any questions, please, contact me.
Thank you for your willingness to serve!

WNCC-LO President
