Saturday, November 14, 2020, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
On Saturday, Nov. 14, from 9 a.m. to noon, lay and clergy people of the Baltimore-Washington Conference will gather for a Time of Equipping and Celebrating, which will include the proceedings of Laity Session of Annual Conference.
A special feature of the event will be an immersive experience by Fear+Less Dialogue, a grassroots organization committed to creating unique spaces for unlikely partners to engage in hard heartfelt conversations that see gifts in others, hear value in stories, and work for change and positive transformation in self and others. Participants will leave the session with renewed energy to value the strength and solidarity of an inclusive society that embraces all individuals.
In addition to the time of equipping, the gathering will include:
- A time of worship and welcome from BWC Lay Leader Delores Martin
- An address to BWC leaders by Bishop LaTrelle Easterling
- Honoring the BWC's 11 new Certified Lay Ministers
- Presentation of five awards to churches and individuals that honor outstanding discipleship. Learn more at www.bwcumc.org/resources/grants-and-awards.
The event will be live-streamed, with the exception of the interactive conversation segment. This is why registration is required and limited. Registration opens soon.
