RANGE OF COSTS FOR HOTELS FOR 2023 AC SESSION
As you work on your church budgets it may be helpful to know some of the costs associated with Annual Conference, which will meet May 18-20, 2023 at the Community Arts Center in Williamsport, PA.  While we aren’t yet ready to promote the room blocks that we have for Annual Conference, please estimate that the pre-tax rates for rooms ranges from around $110-140/ night.
The submission of Annual Church Conference form #3 (Certification of Election of Lay Members) as well as the registration of Lay Members at Large to attend Annual Conference determines the timing of the release of information regarding housing and the hotel blocks of rooms.
If you have any questions, contact: Rev. Dr. Kathleen Kind – kkind@susumc.org

Special Session
The Northeastern Jurisdiction, of which Susquehanna is a part, has called a special session for October 15 to be held virtually from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Delegates will vote on the number of bishops to elect during the coming Northeastern Jurisdictional Conference to be held November 2-4 in Baltimore. The jurisdiction’s bishops are recommending no elections this November.  WATCH ONLINE

The Church Website Still Matters!
Your homepage doesn’t need to link to the minutes from the latest committee meeting. Instead, it should have clear paths that provide a sample of what attending your church is like. Gather and present the most important information a person needs to make a decision about visiting your community in person. It is important to regularly review your church’s website and ensure that it offers what viewers want and expect. Following a few basic guidelines will help you get the most out of your site and you can increase your ability to spread God’s love and grace in your community.
