Prayers for UM General Conference

Please keep our denomination in prayer as we approach a special “General Conference” scheduled for February 23-26 in St. Louis. The General Conference is the primary decision making body for the UMC, made up of approximately 1,000 clergy and lay delegates from across the globe. The purpose of this conference is to examine the church’s position on human sexuality in light of the unity of the church. More information can be found at the UMC’s website: http://www.umc.org/topics/general-conference-2019-special-session.
 
Many are calling for prayers from 2:23 – 2:26 pm daily until the Conference ends.  Locally, Jarvis Memorial UMC will host “An Evening of Prayer & Praise” on 2/17 at 7 pm in their Taft Center to lift up this conference and our denomination.
