The A-to-Z aspects of Oklahoma’s Annual Conference begin with "app" and examine "Why?" (the theme) in sessions May 29-June 1 at Oklahoma City University and OKC-St. Luke’s United Methodist Church.
The OKUMC app can be downloaded to your smartphone or other digital device. The free software application will put at your fingertips all the information you need for the conference. (Master the Media.)
Bishop Jimmy Nunn will deliver his inaugural episcopal address, and he will preach Monday and Wednesday evenings at St. Luke’s.
Guided conversation on challenging issues will fill Tuesday evening at OCU’s Freede Center.
Live streaming of the worship and business begins Monday evening.
Resolutions await vote
The Board of Church & Society has proposed the resolution "Addressing Environmental Challenges, Global Warming, and Climate Change."
Tulsa-Boston Avenue and OKC-First seek designation as United Methodist Historic Sites, in proposals from the Commission on Archives & History.
Action to close four churches is sought by the Board of Trustees for OKC-Douglas Boulevard, Franklin, Crescent-Mount Vernon, and Tulsa-Rose Hill.
Five constitutional amendments advanced by the 2016 General Conference also will be considered.
The offering will go to the "Legacy of Care" project of the Circle of Care, marking 100 years helping Oklahoma children and youths.
The Office of Mission asks for donations of health and bedding kits to meet emergency needs in disasters.
In addition to favorite lunch options, delegates may lunch with Native artist Connie Seabourn on Wednesday. (See story, page 5.)
For the first time, you may order and pay for a printed copy of the Pre-Conference Workbook through an online publishing service. Print on-demand publishing also will be used for the 2017 Oklahoma Conference Journal, when it is produced later this year.
The digital version of the Pre-Conference Workbook, 100-plus pages, is available online for you to view or for free download.
Online registration closes on May 17.
