Feel called to do more than just attend this year’s Annual Conference?

There are many ways to use your gifts in service to your fellow United Methodists. From hosting attendees to assisting with business sessions to singing in the joint choir, find a way to put your gifts to work.

Volunteer Your Time & Talents

Adjusting to a new kind of conference in a different place means we’ll need lots of extra hands to keep things running smoothly.  Our goal is to have at least 400 volunteers helping with everything from hospitality to entertainment to getting our business accomplished.

Whatever time you have available … whatever talent you may bring … there is a way you can help!  Clink the link below to find out more about signing up.

Annual Conference Offerings

Offerings will be received at worship services throughout Annual Conference.  Funds will provide meals through the Haiti Hot Lunch program and at Bishop Judith Craig Children’s Village in Liberia, aid the Flint Water Crisis and more.  Click below for full details and share with your congregation!
