This weekend Stacy Braeske and I will be representing UUMC at the Missouri Annual Conference June 5-9. The Missouri Annual Conference is the annual business meeting for the United Methodist Church in Missouri. Every local church sends lay and clergy representation. Stacy serves as our Lay Member to Annual Conference and attends and votes on behalf of UUMC.
The Conference includes worship opportunities, teaching moments, workshops and business sessions for clergy and laity. This year, the theme is passionate worship and the keynote speaker is Rev. Adam Hamilton from the United Methodist Church of Resurrection. Rev. Hamilton will be teaching about effective church leadership, ideas for preaching and worship, and strategies for reaching the unchurched.
When we return, Stacy will share an update with the UUMC congregation.
Please be in prayer for the clergy and lay delegates who will gather this weekend!
