Get ready for Virtual Annual Conference. ZOOM Training for members

Sowing Seeds: Rooting, Tending, Reaping is the theme of the 2020 Annual Conference. Vibrant Congregations is the third in the series based on the vision statement of the Michigan Conference.
The focus of the conference is on equipping the local church for vibrant worship, strong lay leadership, and new ministries that engage the community. COVID-19 concerns keep us from gathering together to share in this work. Webinars for equipping the local congregation, either in-person, or virtual worship, will be presented throughout the rest of the year.
