I have been told the following are the events when the CA visits NY the weekend of June 13-14:
Saturday - Gospel Fest held at a Marriott Hotel in Midtown Manhattan. To this event are invited the members from Brooklyn, Rosedale, Bronx and Hollis. This event is by invitation only and requires a ticket. The members are putting on a Gospel Fest with singing in English, Creole and African languages. These congregations are not invited to Woodbury on Sunday.
Sunday - Service in Woodbury with tickets only - invited are Woodbury, Suffolk, Astoria and White Plains only.
The Chinese congregations are not invited to either event.
You would think if they were renting a venue, they would have gotten one big enough for the whole district to attend the service. But then they could not "show off" Woodbury I guess.
I wonder how the congregations for Saturday and Sunday were decided since it is not based on Geography (White Plains is further from Woodbury than most of the others)
Maybe it is just me, but I find something distasteful about how this was broken down and who can go and who can't.
