RECENT NEWS ABOUT ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Dreaming, researching, seeking opinions, and testing ideas is the work the Way Forward Teams are tasked before the Special Session of the Desert Southwest Conference. Read about the progress so far.
The DSC Way Forward has already begun its work of dreaming of ways to reinvent The United Methodist Church as a church that practices inclusion of all in the work of ministry and mission; or of creating a new expression of the church that is rooted in Wesleyan theology and open to all. We are still looking for persons with passion and energy to engage in this work.
Laurie Lineberry, Conference Lay Leader shares a snapshot of the 2019 Laity Session which focused on prayer. Check out the video of the entire session at the end of this article.
The purpose of the special session is to consider all remaining petitions and resolutions submitted to the June 2019 session of Annual Conference and new legislation related to the 2019 special session of the General Conference, the future of the Desert Southwest Conference, or the future of The United Methodist Church.
Congratulations to the members of the Annual Conference for forming ten teams to work on the way forward for the people and churches of the Desert Southwest Conference. The work of these teams is a tremendous job that is equally exciting, creative, and hope-filled, just as much as it is a comprehensive, prayerful, and meticulous job to be done.
