Two Pre-Conference Briefings will be held Saturday April 21. The first session will be from 9:30 a.m. until noon at Jackson Chapel UMC in Frederick. The second will be at St. John's UMC at the Wilde Lake Interfaith Center in Columbia from 1:30 to 4 p.m. The content of both sessions will be similar. Lay and clergy members are invited to attend whichever is most convenient. No registration is required.
The purpose of these informational and fellowship events is to allow the lay and clergy members gathering at the May 30-June 1 Annual Conference Session in Baltimore to learn more about the resolutions, budget and other issues that will be considered.
The theme of this year's annual conference is "We are One: Beneath the Cross."
