Pre-Conference Briefings

Indiana United Methodists have the opportunity to learn about changes related to health care plans as well as updates and implementation of plans discussed at the 2019 General Conference at Pre-Conference Briefings. These briefings will be held in six different United Methodist Churches across the Indiana Conference and will offer church leaders and congregants a chance to learn more about the decisions made at the global gathering in St. Louis, next steps, and how we can equip local churches as Indiana United Methodists prepare to meet June 12-15 for the 2019 Annual Conference session.

You are highly encouraged to attend so that your questions may be acknowledged and answered. However if you are unable to attend, you can watch a recording from our Pre-Conference Briefing held at Blue Grass UMC.
