Welcome service and reception for Bishop and Mrs. Bryan set for Sept. 18


On Sunday, Sept. 18, the South Georgia Conference will host a welcome service and reception for South Georgia’s new episcopal family, Bishop R. Lawson Bryan and Mrs. Sherrill Bryan. It will be held at 4 p.m. at Mulberry Street United Methodist Church in Macon.

The special service is a time for our Annual Conference to gather for worship and to welcome Bishop Bryan and his family and to give thanks for his assignment to the South Georgia Conference.

Bishop Bryan will preach, the Mulberry Street UMC choir will perform, and the service will feature laity and clergy from different areas of service and ministry. The service will be followed by a reception. 

All are invited and encouraged to attend. Childcare will be available.

For those not able to travel to Macon, the service will be streamed live at www.sgaumc.org/welcomeservice

Bishop Bryan was elected bishop by the 2016 Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference and was assigned to the South Georgia Conference by the SEJ Committee on Episcopacy. He began his four-year term in South Georgia on September 1.
