Bishop Ward continues the theme of “journey”
Bishop Ward talks about the journey between the 2012 and 2013 Annual Conferences as the NC Conference has moved into eight districts in this week’s Connections.
Retiree health insurance proposal pre-conference mailing
All widow(er)s, clergy and lay members of the NC Conference will receive a pre-conference mailing with details of the Board of Pension and the Insurance Committee’s proposal regarding the retiree health insurance plan. Documents describing the proposal and sharing questions and answers discussed at the district informational sessions held in May will be mailed by June 6. The pre-conference mailing has also been posted in its entirety on the Insurance website. For questions about the proposal, contact the Conference Treasurer’s office at 1-800-849-4433.
Free VHS Tapes at Annual Conference
The Conference Media Center will be giving away VHS tapes from their collection that are no longer needed. These VHS tapes have been replaced by DVDs or have not been checked out in the past five years. Come help yourself to Bible studies, curriculum, children’s videos, youth studies, movies, seasonal videos, and more. The Media Center display table will also be hosting a drawing for “The Story Church Resource Kit” from Zondervan for anyone who signs up for the Media Center newsletter.
Stop Hunger Now Packaging at 2013 Annual Conference
This year, persons attending Annual Conference are invited to help meet the challenge to package 100,000 meals for Stop Hunger Now during the three-day conference in Greenville – a goal which has been established by Bishop Hope Morgan Ward. To meet the goal, we need two things: volunteers to package the meals and donations of $.25 per meal. To accomplish the goal, we would need several hundred volunteers and $25,000 of donations. You do not need to be a delegate to Annual Conference to come and join us for this exciting event. While all volunteers are welcomed, the project organizers encourage individuals/groups to pre-register go to Stop Hunger Now AC. Persons not able to attend Annual Conference can donate towards the shipping by clicking SHN donation.
Free health screening at Annual Conference
Persons attending Annual Conference can check their numbers by attending the free health screening at Annual Conference. The screening will be in Ballroom A of the Hilton Convention Center on Thursday, June 13 from 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Clergy and laypersons currently insured on the Conference insurance program can earn 10 points for the 2013 WIN program by participating.
