Three offerings will be received when nearly 1,000 clergy and lay representatives of Eastern Pennsylvania Conference churches gather May 19-21, 2011 for Annual Conference.
During Opening Worship, on the afternoon of Thursday, May 19, two offerings will support denominational and conference ministry with the poor: the Hope for the Children Initiative and Imagine No Malaria.
An additional offering will be received at the Service of Ordination on the evening of Friday, May 20, which will go to scholarships for undergraduate and seminary students.
Members of annual conference are encouraged to receive offerings in their congregations and then bring their personal and congregational offerings to annual conference.
