2020 Annual Conference Agenda

The 2020 Annual Conference Session will begin with an Opening Worship Service on Sunday evening, June 7, at 6:30 p.m. Conference will conclude with the Sending Forth Service on Tuesday, June 9. Below is a schedule of events. All Sunday night activities as well as all business sessions will be held at the Columbus Convention Center. The Memorial Service and Ordination/Commissioning Service will be held at St. Luke UMC. The Memorial Service will be streamed live at the Columbus Convention Center for those who find it helpful to stay on site.


Please note: The tentative adjournment time is 4:00 pm on Tuesday afternoon. However, depending on how our time is flowing, one possible scenario is to have a longer morning business session and conclude by 1:00 pm. This will allow people to leave at that time for lunch and begin traveling back home.
