FOR ALL CLERGY REGARDING THE ORDINATION SERVICE ON JUNE 2
    
On Saturday, June 2 all Clergy will gather in the "Great American Hall - Red Room" at 1 p.m. to robe (those ordained will wear red stoles) in preparation for the procession into the Ordination service.

There will be hanging racks available for your use in the rear of the room Saturday morning. Bishops, cabinet, and those being commissioned or ordained along with their mentors will gather at the same time in the hallway in front of the elevator outside the entrance to the Red Room.

While it is mandatory for all clergy to attend it is also a joy to collectively celebrate God's anointing and call to ministry upon those being commissioned and ordained!

MISSION CENTRAL NEEDS VOLUNTEERS DURING ANNUAL CONFERENCE
    
We are in need of a couple of volunteers to accept donations at the Mission Central truck during Annual Conference on Thursday, May 31 and Friday, June 1.  The Mission Central truck will be located in the parking lot at the Hershey Lodge.

Ideally, coverage is needed from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday. You do not need to drive the truck at all, it will be parked there already. We just need people to be there to accept donations from Conference attendees throughout the day. Mission Central staff members will be at Conference if any questions or assistance is needed. You don't have to cover it all!  If you can only cover part of the day, that would be fine.  If you'd like to bring a buddy, that would be great, too.

If you are able to help for any or all of these times, if you have any questions or concerns or just want to get some more information, email Adam Hoover, Mission Central Director of Development, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Thank you in advance!
