District Conferences happen Sunday, May 6

Our four districts will meet for their pre-Annual Conference gatherings this Sunday, May 6, from 3 to 5 PM, in various locations:

  • North District Conference: Faith Alive UMC, 678 Pine Street, Palmerton, PA.
  • East District Conference: Lighthouse Fellowship UMC, 137 N. Easton Rd., Glenside, PA.
  • West District Conference: Salem UMC, 140 North Penn Street, Manheim, PA.
  • South District Conference: Phoenixville: First UMC 865 S Main Street, Phoenixville, PA 19460

Among their agenda highlights will be: worship, reviewing key Annual Conference plans and resolutions; hearing district ministry leaders’ reports; honoring new clergy retirees, Certified Lay Ministers and Christ Servant Ministers, and clergy expecting to be ordained, commissioned and approved as local pastors at Annual Conference.

Offerings will be received, in celebration of connectional stewardship, to support district missional priorities. For example, the East District will continue its support for The Methodist Church of Puerto Rico’s hurricane recovery efforts. The South District’s offering will continue its ongoing support for the Mpasa Pediatric Clinic, particularly its 2018 project, “Giving Sight to the Blind.” See the MPASA Pediatric Clinic “Giving Sight to the Blind” Flyer.
