On Saturday May 20, the EPA Annual Conference was coming to a close. Our final day began with praise and worship to celebrate all that had been accomplished together. The agenda was to review and vote on the remainder of the Conference budget and resolutions. However, due to time constraints and the importance of the material, Bishop Schol asked for a vote to return at a later date to finalized the agenda; the vote was carried and we will wait for information on the new date.
The Service of Commissioning and Ordination was held for new Clergy. It was a wonderful way to close the annual conference. I am glad to have had this experience representing Wesley UMC at the Annual Conference and to see how we, the laity and clergy, work together for the good of our church and to the glory of God. Our faith guides our hearts and minds to lead us to be “people blessing people” and together we are a church of “possibilities”.
Thank you for this opportunity. If you would like to watch the conference, you can find it on youtube.com by searching “2023 EPA Annual Conference”.
