Leading SGAUMC Forward: A Bright Future with Hope

September Gatherings with Bishop Graves 

Join Bishop David Graves this September as he travels 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 regional gatherings are geared toward laity, all are welcome to attend. Clergy will have an opportunity to meet with the bishop while he is in each district for clergy specific meetings. Please note that 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.”
