Young Adults kick off Conference with their annual gathering! Photo by Rev. Dr. Joseph McBrayer.
The sessions will be anchored by four worship experiences, each led by talented North Georgia United Methodists. The services themselves will progress through the stages of worship. We will begin Tuesday afternoon with "Gathering" (Opening Worship), move into "The Word Proclaimed" (Service of Remembrance), then "A Time of Response" (Ordination), and "Sending Forth" (Closing Worship).
Thousands of North Georgia United Methodists and guests began gathering in Athens today for the 2017 Annual Conference session. Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson, our Conference's first female bishop, will preside over the three-day annual meeting June 13-15.This year we will focus on excellent worship that inspires action.
