Annual Conference 2020

To guard against spread of the coronavirus during the 2020 pandemic, it was not possible to hold the 2020 Annual Conference in person. Because Conference rules require in-person voting, the celebrations and business of the Conference were cared for in different ways. 

  • A one-day session was held via Zoom on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020. Worship, the Bishop's State of the Church address and a financial update, as well as a question and answer time were offered during the morning. Afternoon sessions allowed various ministry and affinity groups to gather online and provide updates. Read the AC2020 Wrap-up Reports from the Five Areas of Focus also were posted online.  The sessions Prayer Team kept the Prayer Room open both Oct. 2 & 3, offering appointments or drop-in opportunities to pray.
  • Ordination and Commissioning services will take place in 2021.
