Laity Day with the Bishop 2017
This year we will be focused on the theme "Together We Are More". We will hear from Bishop Trimble a powerful reminder of our connection to one another and to our faith. We will recognize the many ways laity throughout the conference are serving Christ and making a difference in their neighborhoods, our state, the country and around the world. We will celebrate that "Together We Are More" and embrace the role lay persons have to make a difference for Christ.
Workshops featuring the 4 Focuses of the United Methodist Church will be a highlight of the day including Engaging in Ministry with the Poor, Improving Global Health, Developing Principled Christian Leaders, and Creating New and Renewed Congregations.
