Letter to Laity and Clergy: Celebration to Honor the Ministry of the Watsons


Dear Laity and Clergy of the North Georgia Conference:
In a few weeks we will gather at the Classic Center in Athens, Georgia for the 150th session of the North Georgia Annual Conference. We will gather around the theme, “Bound for Greater Things.”
The Wednesday, June 8, evening session of the North Georgia Annual Conference will be a service of celebration honoring the ministry of Bishop B. Michael Watson and Mrs. Margaret L. Watson. This special service will begin at 7 p.m. with an informal reception following.
During this special service, we will give Bishop and Mrs. Watson a gift of appreciation, which will be presented in the form of a “love offering.” You may make a contribution toward this special gift by directing a check, made payable to the North Georgia Conference, to the address below. Please note, “Watson Love Offering—Fund Number 1280,” in the memo line of the check. Contributions must be received by May 27.

Lastly, the Conference Episcopacy Committee is assembling a book of remembrances. There will be tables set up at Annual Conference where people can go to write notes to Bishop and Mrs. Watson.  Individuals may also send notes, pictures, etc. before Annual Conference to Episcopacy.NGUMC@gmail.com.  
We give thanks to God for the ministry of Bishop and Mrs. Watson, and we wish them well as they prepare to enter the next phase of their ministry.
Grace to you and peace,
Mr. Skip Matson
