Each year at Annual Conference, the North Alabama Conference Commission on Archives and History presents Charter Church Awards and the Annie Ford and Glynn Wheeler Award. Nominations for both recognitions are now open until April 10, 2017.
If your church is a currently active United Methodist Church in the North Alabama Conference, and was founded before 1870 it might qualify for recognition as a Charter Church. A Charter Church might have been established in the Methodist Episcopal Church South, Methodist Episcopal Church, Methodist Protestant Church, United Brethren or the Methodist Central Jurisdiction.
