Though October has just arrived, the Conference staff and Cabinet are already making plans for Annual Conference 2013. My desire is that this will be a time of celebration, community-building and connecting. The goal is that the worship will be inspiring . . . teaching will be excellent . . . and business will be accomplished with expediency and grace.
Here is what every lay and clergy member is invited to do to help make these goals a reality.
Mark your calendars now for the date and location. (Note that we are changing the dates to Sunday afternoon, June 2- Tuesday afternoon, June 4. It will be at Birmingham-Southern College with the ordination service at a local church. More details will be forthcoming as plans are finalized.)
Begin now to pray that God’s prevenient grace will go ahead of us in preparing our hearts for a powerful Annual Conference 2013.
Pass along to your District Superintendent or our Conference Connectional Ministries staff any suggestions you have to help us set the table for an extraordinary Annual Conference.
