South Georgia United Methodists are invited and encouraged to attend a post-General Conference information session Saturday, March 9 from 1-4 p.m. at the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center in Tifton.
An informational meeting – not a special session of the annual conference – the gathering is open to everyone in the South Georgia Conference of The United Methodist Church.
“I encourage everyone to come, and I especially encourage every local church to send a delegation of persons to represent that church at the information session in Tifton,” said Bishop Lawson Bryan.
The information session is to share with laity and clergy the decisions made during the denomination’s special called General Conference, which will be held in St. Louis Feb. 23-26, 2019. South Georgia’s delegation will be on hand during the information session and will share information about decisions made during the General Conference session. Bishop Bryan and other conference leaders will also be in attendance to discuss and explore implications for the South Georgia Annual Conference and outline next steps.
“Our goal is to provide clarity for laity and clergy and all of our churches so that we know what came out of General Conference and what the next steps are in our journey as we move together into God’s future for our annual conference,” Bishop Bryan said.
This is an information session only, and no votes will be taken.
