Bishop Graves to meet with Laity in District Gatherings Sept. 11, 18, & 25


During three weeks in September, Bishop David Graves will travel across the South Georgia Conference to meet with clergy and laity in various settings. The purpose of these gatherings is to provide necessary and accurate information around current denominational matters. While the three Sunday district gatherings are geared toward laity, all are welcome to attend.

The Sunday gathering dates are as follows:

  • Sept. 11: District Gathering for the North Central & Northwest Districts at Perry UMC from 4pm – 6 pm
  • Sept. 18: District Gathering for the South Central & Southwest Districts at Tifton First UMC from 4pm – 6pm 
  • Sept. 25: District Gathering for the Coastal & Northeast Districts at Richmond Hill UMC from 4pm – 6pm
Clergy will have an opportunity to meet with the bishop while he is in each district for clergy specific meetings. The weekday gatherings are for clergy only.

“I look forward to visiting, talking with, and listening to clergy and laity from each district as we seek to bring clarity around where we are as a denomination and a conference,” said Bishop Graves. “I hope you will make plans now to be a part of a gathering near you.”
