As part of their continuing resource giveaway, the Connectional Ministries staff will host an open house from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. on Feb. 10-13, 2020, at the United Methodist Center on the campus of Birmingham-Southern College. Pastors and laity of the North Alabama Conference will be welcomed to browse their selection of more than 500 resources, discuss ministry ideas and options and enjoy Valentine’s treats.
“We have given away 500 of the 1,110 items donated, and we have enjoyed getting to know church members and clergy from across the conference,” Director of Connectional Ministries Linda Holland says. “So many of our friends, when picking up their orders, loved seeing how many valuable resources are available and getting their hands on them. We decided to host the open house to let everyone explore our remaining resources and to celebrate their ministries.”
The online resource giveaway will continue until the open house week when it will be paused so that those visiting the Connectional Ministries Office can select their items in person. On Monday and Tuesday (February 10-11) the staff will welcome those who have not yet participated in the giveaway. On Wednesday and Thursday (February 12-13) anyone who has previously placed and received orders will be welcomed to choose and pick up additional resources. Hours for the open house each day will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
