Charlotte 2005 will include adult delegate assemblies, conventions for youth, junior high and children, as well as activities for young adults.

The planning committees – in conjunction with youth and adult worship planning committees – are shaping an assembly that provides joint worship and recreational opportunities for adults and youth, seminars, servant projects, late-night activities including drama, music and comedy and theme-related events.
