2016 CHURCH CONFERENCE INSTRUCTIONS

A message from DS Elbert Dulworth

Print out this letter

May 2016

 

Dear Friends,

 

Grace and peace to you in Jesus Christ. While September may seem such a long way off in our calendars, now is that time that we begin making plans for our annual church conferences. Therefore, here’s the “heads up” for our fall time together. Please make sure to read all of the materials and plan ahead for your church conferences.

 

The church conference schedule, forms, materials, and agenda, may be accessed from this website. ALL CAPS indicates the host church in a multiple-point charge. If the day that I have set does not work for you, please switch with one of your colleagues in the immediate vicinity and notify us in the district office. Also you will want to keep in mind that I cannot make it from the east end to the west end of the district in the same day. If you still cannot find someone to switch dates with you, please contact the office immediately and we will see if there is another date available.

 

Here are some reminders as you fill them out:

 

The theme for this year is “Nurturing Fruitfulness.” Therefore, I’m asking for you and your congregation(s) to reflect on answering the following two questions at some point during our time together during your church conference:

  1. What fruits of ministry do we see in our church/charge as a result of God’s work in and through us?
  2. As a church/charge, where do we still need to tend the soil in order to see fruit?

 

I’m inviting you to help your congregations find ways to answer those two questions at your church conference this year. Be creative if you feel creative. Be direct if you feel more direct. Most importantly, let’s be honest and open about what we are doing and how God may be challenging us to grow as communities of faith.

 

If you have any questions or concerns as you prepare for this year’s church conference, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail the district office, 906-228-4644. Blessings to each of you as your prepare for this important time in our life together as the Church.

 

Yours in Christ’s service

 

Rev. Elbert Paul Dulworth

Marquette District Superintendent Church.
