2019 Special Session of General Conference

The Council of Bishops announced the call to a Special    Session of the General Conference on Feb. 23-26, 2019, in St. Louis, Missouri.  The special meeting of The United Methodist Church’s top lawmaking assembly will be limited to acting on a report by the Council of Bishops, based on the proposals from the Commission on the Way Forward. General Conference, which usually meets every four years, is the only body that can speak for the denomination.  “The Council of Bishops encourages the entire church to continue in deep, unceasing prayer for Holy Spirit breakthroughs for the Commission on a Way Forward and the Special Session of General Conference,” said Dakotas-Minnesota Area Bishop Bruce Ough, the president of the Council of Bishops, in a letter released Tuesday,   April 25, 2017.

Reminder:  There will be no Charity Circle meeting in the month of January.  We will start back on Monday,
February 4th. 
If you are not attending, you are missing a blessing and good food.  Join us Monday mornings at 7:00 am.  We are usually done by 8:00 am.  Beginning Monday, January 8th, Dale Moore will teach an abbreviated version of the Book of Hebrews Bible Study.  If you haven't attended one of these Bible Studies, you are again missing a blessing.  Come see what God is doing
