PRE-ANNUAL CONFERENCE LIVE STREAM
Sunday, April 2, 2017
3 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Audrey Wilder, Director of Christian Education and Young People's Ministry
As you probably know, our Annual Conference gathering for the Susquehanna Conference will be held in a new location at the Hershey Lodge. In addition, 2017 begins the new quadrennial theme of Better Together. With so many new and exciting things on the horizon, the opportunity arose to host a Pre-Annual Conference Live Stream event at various locations across our conference to help Annual Conference attendees prepare for our time together in May.
This event is open to clergy, lay members, members at large, visitors to Annual Conference, and anyone else who may be interested in the events of this year's Annual Conference.
The event will feature Bishop Park and our conference lay leader, John Konieczny, as they kick off our time together. Presentations throughout the live stream will include information on:
- Next Faithful Step for Mission Central
- Conference prayer initiative
- Resolutions and constitutional amendments
- Conference work with General Board of Religion and Race
- Worship opportunities at Annual Conference
- Spending Plan for 2018
We invite you to come and be a part of this special event as we prepare for our time together as a Beloved Community of Faith at Annual Conference 2017.
