Lay leader writes local delegates
Greetings to the laity who are local churches’ delegates to the 2017 Annual Conference, as well as those who are equalization and ex-officio delegates!
The Board of Laity congratulates you on being elected to this leadership role. You are important in the Church’s life and ministry for Christ in Oklahoma.
Annual Conference will be May 29–June 1 (Monday-Thursday) in Oklahoma City, at Oklahoma City University and St. Luke’s UMC.
"Why?" is the theme for our meeting, based on Matthew 9:38: "Ask the Lord in charge of the harvest to send out workers to bring it in" (CEV). Our new bishop, Jimmy Nunn, will be preaching.
Activities for laity will begin Monday at St. Luke’s. Registration opens at 11 a.m., followed by Laity Orientation/Laity Session from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
It is crucial that your current email address is listed in the Conference database. That is how you will receive important information about Annual Conference. Please confirm this with the person at your church who is responsible for updating officer information.
Going forward, check the Conference website regularly for registration information: www.okumc.org. And watch your email for more detailed information from me.
If you have questions, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chuck Stewart, Conference Lay Leader
