“Celebrate UMC” is an event for all people. It will be held on Monday, June 13, 2022, in Flowers Hall at Huntingdon College at 5:00pm. Rev. Tom Berlin, lead clergy delegate in the Virginia Conference and senior pastor of Floris UMC, will be the keynote speaker. Tom has a wealth of knowledge about the denomination and is gifted at explaining complex polity to all United Methodists. He also served on the leadership team that crafted the Protocol: Reconciliation and Grace Through Separation*.
While this event is certainly for those who know they wish to remain United Methodist, perhaps more importantly we hope those discerning their next step will attend. There will be an opportunity for Q and As that will help accomplish the goal of providing accurate and helpful information.
Please make plans to attend. Please invite your lay members to annual conference. Please invite church members (it is not necessary for them to be lay members). All are truly welcome at this grace-filled event. Registration is not required but small donations to cover the cost of the box dinner are welcome.
*This legislation was tabled due to the postponement of General Conference.
