General Conference is here!
The United Methodist Church’s top legislative body will meet at the Oregon Convention Center, on May 10 – 20. That is like in two weeks.
What is important to know:
- General Conference meets once every four years.
- The conference can revise church law, as well as adopt resolutions on current moral, social, public policy and economic issues.
- Approves plans and budgets for church-wide programs.
General conference traditionally rotates among the church’s five geographic jurisdictions.
Delegates from U. S., Africa, Europe and Asia will be attending. Our conference has 2 voting attendees. Bishops take turns leading the sessions, but do NOT have a vote.
Rev. Laura Jaquith Bartlett is worship leader for the 2016 General Conference.
Rev. Laura and husband Rev. Todd Bartlett served our church several years ago.
Please pray for our church leaders and help them make wise and just decisions.
