The Service of Installation of Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson as episcopal leader of the North Georgia Conference will be held Sunday, September 18, at 4 p.m. at Peachtree Road UMC in Atlanta.
The special service is a time for our Annual Conference to gather for worship and to welcome Bishop Haupert-Johnson and her family and to give thanks for her assignment to the North Georgia Conference. The service will be followed by a reception.
Those unable to attend are invited to watch the service via Live Stream beginning Sunday at 4 p.m. The link will be available at http://www.ngumc.org/serviceofinstallation.
Several North Georgia churches extended invitations to the Conference to host the service, and Peachtree Road was chosen among them because of accessibility, parking, availability of seating in the sanctuary, and facility to host the reception.
Bishop Haupert-Johnson ("Bishop Sue") was elected bishop by the 2016 Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference and was assigned to the North Georgia Conference by the SEJ Committee on Episcopacy. She began her four-year term in North Georgia on September 1.
