All clergy in the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church are invited to join Bishop Ward for “Let Us Pray: A Gathering of North Carolina Clergy”. This special event will be held on Monday, February 1, 2016 from 10 am to 4 pm at St. Luke UMC, 2916 Wicker Street, Sanford, NC.
The theme of the day will be prayer. Our main speaker will be Dr. Warren Smith, a member of the North Carolina Conference and a faculty member at Duke Divinity School. Dr. Smith will be leading us from his recent book “The Lord’s Prayer: Confessing the New Covenant”. Prayer stations and experiences will be offered throughout the day and a light lunch will be served.
All North Carolina Conference clergy (deacons, elders, provisional members and local pastors) are invited to attend.
During the day together we will elect the chairs of the order of elders and deacons and the chair of the fellowship of local pastors and associate members. These chairpersons will serve in the 2016-20 quadrennium.
We will close the day with a service of Holy Communion and a sending forth.
Please join Bishop Ward and your clergy colleagues for this very special day on February 1, 2016. More info and registration will be coming in January.
