2017 Church Conference Information

The 2016 Book of Discipline states that "The District Superintendent shall fix the time of meetings of the Charge Conference" (Para. 246.4). This fall, Charge Conferences will be held in connectional groups to enable ongoing opportunities to work with, and learn from, one another. You are strongly encouraged to work with the date and location assigned. Any changes that must be made will require the Superintendent's approval. To encourage broader participation by all members of your church, the Charge Conference will be convened as a Church Conference, thus extending the vote all local church members present at the meeting. (Para. 248, 2016 Book of Discipline).

Church Conferences will be 2.5 hours; the first part (1.5 hours) all churches will gather in one place. The second part (one hour) each church will meet as a small group.

Conference forms are located on the Church Dashboard. Please remember you will need to nominate and vote on your member(s) to the 2018 Annual Conference at your church conference. Please be diligent in obtaining these nominations prior to your church conference.

Conference forms needing signatures can be found on the Conference website or by clicking here.
