Laity Convocation 2019

 "KNOWING OUR WAY:  TURNING THE TIDE"

Come join laity and clergy from across our conference on Saturday, February 9 at the New Lenox UMC for Laity Convocation 2019.  Our keynote speaker will be the Rev. Sue Nilson Kibbey, Director of the Missional Church Consultation Initiative for the West Ohio Conference.  She will lead us in a discussion about her Breakthrough Prayer Initiative from her most recent book Flood Gates:  Holy Momentum for a Fearless Church.  Our small group breakouts will be all about learning and discussing The Way Forward and the special session of General Conference which will take place beginning February 23, 2019.  

Our day will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 12:45 p.m.  The early registration fee will be $10 or $40 per church, so begin now to gather your group.  After January 25 the fee will increase to $15 per person or $50 per church.  Stay afterward and enjoy conversation with friends to discuss the day’s events or with whom you don’t get a chance to see very often. Lunch will be available for $10.50.
