2019 Conference to explore ministry of generations

Worship to celebrate ageless wisdom of Psalms

By John W. Coleman

We will not hide them from their children;   
we will tell to the coming generation
the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might,   
and the wonders that he has done.  —Psalm 78:4

“Tell to the Coming Generation,” from Psalm 78:4, is the theme Bishop Peggy Johnson has chosen for the 2019 Annual Conference, which returns to the Expo Center in Oaks, Pa, June 13-15. But the session’s program may be more about listening to the voices of that generation that is both coming and already arrived.

Much of the focus, inspired by wisdom from the Psalms, will be on evangelism, including teaching and being taught by the millennial generation and by all generations. Read more…

Schedule Highlights:

Krystl Johnson, a member of St. Daniel’s UMC Chester, and a lay delegate to the 2016 and 2019 General Conferences, will be the Laity Session featured speaker.
