Bishop’s “By Faith, On Mission, Together”

“By Faith, On Mission, Together” is the focus of the 2017-18 Bishop’s Days with Church Leadership Teams, scheduled over the next five months in each of the 12 districts of the South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Bishop L. Jonathan Holston has invited all local church leadership teams to spend a morning with him, thinking about how we equip our congregations to walk faithfully into God’s vision for God’s church.

Teams will have the opportunity to hear what churches are learning from the Forward Focus process, and the day will close with Holy Communion as we celebrate our connection to one another and to Jesus Christ.

The date for the Walterboro District is November 18, 2017, from 9 a.m. to noon at Canaan UMC located at 171 SC 61 in Ridgeville.

Pastors, please click on the link and register your church and team.
