The 2021 Annual Conference is scheduled to take place June 22-24, 2021. At this point, it's unclear whether the event will be entirely virtual or a hybrid of virtual and in-person. Much depends on what happens with the COVID-19 pandemic in the coming months. But please save these dates for our event, and stay tuned for more info!
The theme of our 166th Annual Conference was "Be the Light: Live Hope!" and centered around our gospel imperative to heal a broken world. It took place Saturday, Aug. 29, 9:30-11:30 a.m. and 1:30-3:30 p.m.

The Celebration of Ministry Milestones took place Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020.
This worship service included the ordination and commissioning of clergy, and the recognition of an associate member. While those being honored gathered in-person, along with a small number of their designated guests and many safety measures in place, everyone else participated remotely in order to follow health and social distancing guidelines amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we couldn't all be in the same place for the occasion, this was a powerful and uplifting service. The recording is now available. This worship bulletin will guide you through the service; the liturgy includes some congregational responses.
