Start: Oct. 9, 4 p.m.
End: 7 p.m.
The MnUMB Annual Celebration will begin at 4 p.m. with music, followed by a program and dinner. The Annual Meeting will begin at 6:15 and will be completed by 7 pm. Twin Cities District Superintendent Dan Johnson will share a keynote presentation on how the work of the Builders fits into the Conference efforts of congregational renewal and community outreach.
We will also hear reports from the recipient ministries of the 2015 Fall Call (Brunswick UMC – community playground) and the 2016 Spring Call (Monticello UMC – neighborhood playground), both of which came in response to those churches’ Healthy Church Initiative assessments. Additionally we will be hearing from two churches that received loans this year (Douglas UMC, north of Rochester, for handicapped accessibility and Recovery Church of St. Paul, for furnace replacement).
The business agenda will include election of officers and adoption of the budget. There will also be a report outlining the progress we have made implementing our new vision of serving United Methodist churches throughout the Annual Conference in a way that complements the work of both the Reach, Rejoice, and Renew process and new church development efforts.
