Update: 2012 Conferences
Online operations are expanding for Annual Conference in late May.
For the first time, all participants must register online prior to the meeting, May 27-30 in Tulsa at Boston Avenue UMC.
One form will be used to sign up for the many activities that are part of the week, as well as register for the conference itself. Examples:
For those who cannot attend Annual Conference in person, live streaming again will be offered. A broadband, high-speed Internet connection is needed for best viewing.
Watch for more details in the packet that will be mailed to local-church delegates, in Contact, and at www.okumc.org.
For the first time in 44 years, Oklahoma will host the South Central Jurisdictional Conference, and every church is asked to share in extending hospitality to United Methodists from 15 annual conferences in eight states (including ours).
On July 18-21, the meeting will be in Oklahoma City.
An Oklahoma showcase will dazzle guests at Area Night, July 20, in Cox Convention Center. Wall banners are sought from every church in the state, to encircle the gala.
Jeannie Himes, who is coordinating the banner effort, provided details.
To contact Himes: 405-732-3035, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Area Night will feature performances by Edgar Cruz, the Cherokee Children’s Choir, Oklahoma City University performing arts students, and tribal princesses. Emcee will be OCU President Robert Henry. The banquet is open to all people. Online registration: http://scj.umportal.org
