The 2019 North Alabama Annual Conference theme was “Singing God’s Song in New Places with New Faces.” The Conference priority focus was New Faith Communities.
Throughout Annual Conference the Conference New Church Team asked Conference members and visitors a series of questions and then answered each question through a story about a North Alabama congregation reaching new people in new ways.
The second presentation posed the question “Is your church waiting on God, or is God waiting on your church?” The team then shared the story of Houston Memorial UMC’s fresh expression called Worship on the Water. This new worship service began to reach the large number of lake vacationers in their community.
