Annual Gathering Schedule of Events

Welcome to CBFNC’s 2022 Annual Gathering!  We are thrilled that you have decided to join us for this annual tradition of worship, learning and reconnecting with one another.  We are excited to plan an in-person gathering after two long years apart. We realize everyone has different comfort levels about gathering in groups and traveling. This year’s Annual Gathering will be a “hybrid” event. In addition to all the regular features of the in-person gathering, the main sessions will be livestreamed and workshops will be recorded for online viewing for those who are not comfortable or able to join us in Raleigh. Whether you are there in-person or join us online, we look forward to two days of connecting, worshiping and learning together.
