September 30 is the deadline to register in advance for the Nov. 14 Adjourned Session of the 2015 Annual Conference. The session will be held at Bethany UMC’s Macungie campus, 3801 Brookside Road, Macungie, Pa., near Allentown.
Only several hundred members have registered so far, and time is running out. Planners urge lay and clergy members to register by Sept. 30 to avoid a crowded onsite registration process and so that electronic voting devices can be prepared for them in advance.
Onsite registration will open at 8 AM. Members will gather at 8:30 AM for prayer, and then worship and Holy Conferencing will take place from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Members will hear reports and vote on the 2016 Annual Conference budget and resolutions not dealt with at the regular annual session in May. An offering will be received for “Imagine No Malaria.”
Members will also vote again for 2016 General and Jurisdictional conference delegates. Biographical information and personal statements for each nominee can be found on the conference Website:
Additional information about this session and voting protocols are also on the Annual Conference section of the website.
