For many 80 years this annual community gathering has been held in Olympia, our state's Capitol. Due to the havoc COVID-19 has brought to the world, it is not possible to host this special occasion in person.
In order to continue with this important tradition in the best possible way given the present circumstances, this event will be held on Zoom. Some speakers will be pre-recorded, some will be live, and you will be able to see participants and can interact with people in breakout rooms after the official program has concluded.
Just as in past years, there are two registration options:
Table Host (e.g. hosting a Zoom breakout room for guests you invite)
If you register as a "Table Host" you will have 10 "seats" and can invite friends, family and colleagues. When people are put into small "table groups" you will be placed with your guests in a virtual room for discussion following the program. Individual registrants can request who they would like to have with them in a "table group." This is a virtual simulation of sitting together with a table of old friends - and perhaps those who may become new friends.
While it is disappointing to not have the gift of being together in person, there is an opportunity for those who may not typically be able to participate to do so from the comfort of their home or office, from anywhere in Washington - or beyond. This is the silver lining of meeting in a virtual space!
The last 12 months have been full of unexpected challenges that have left many feeling concerned about the future. Faithful people are wise to come together and pray, even more so during such difficult times. This year’s Governor's Prayer Breakfast provides a significant opportunity to humbly seek God’s blessing and healing for ourselves, as well as for our city, county, state, and nation. We will pray for wise leadership in every sector of society and will highlight that even in the darkest times there is reason for tremendous hope because there is always good news to celebrate.
Please come . . . and share this opportunity with many.
