GC2020 delegates listening sessions postponed

The Eastern PA Conference delegation to the 2020 General & Jurisdiction conferences has postponed its remaining listening sessions, scheduled for April 2, 4, and 20, until further notice. The sessions will be rescheduled when the UMC’s global legislative assembly is rescheduled. They will occur at least two months prior to the new General Conference starting date.  

The Eastern PA delegates agree with the General Conference leadership’s feeling that “a pause is needed at this unique time,” said delegation co-chair Judy Ehninger. “All are encouraged to continue in ministry, sharing God’s love and actualizing the church we are called to be.”  

Ehninger recommends  several ways to prepare for General Conference while awaiting the rescheduled dates:

  1. Visit the Resourceumc.org website and read General Conference news and related articles. All proposed legislation should be posted there.   
  2. Visit the  www.epaumc.org website and find the General Conference 2020 page in the News and Events pull-down menu.
  3. Subscribe to UM News Daily Digest and to our conference’s NEWSpirit Digestonline newsletter, at   communications@epaumc.org  
  4. Pray for The United Methodist Church and our Eastern PA Conference delegation. A roster of delegates with email addresses is posted on our conference website . If you would like to send an individual note of encouragement or ask a question, please do so. We are available to answer your questions as best we can.
