All district conferences will be held on Sunday, May 5, around 3 PM at host churches. Members will hear reports about important district matters and resolutions coming to the Annual Conference in June. They will also elect Equalizing Lay Members to Annual Conference.
Moreover, districts will celebrate milestones in the lives of their clergy–those retiring from ministry; those being commissioned and ordained, and those moving in and out of the district. We will report more plans and information as they become available.
