What is your congregation doing that may be an inspiring example to other congregations?
The 2017 Wisconsin Conference Annual Meeting will feature a “Share Fair” for congregations to share their ministry story with others around the Wisconsin Conference. There’s space for only 20 congregations, so apply now! Deadline is Tuesday, February 28.
Join us Friday evening in the exhibit area to meet up with friends in a casual setting. We are grateful to Cornerstone Fund, who is generously sponsoring hors d’oeuvres and soft drinks for our event. A cash bar will offer beer and wine. And a music trio led by Mugs McFadden will provide a lovely backdrop to the evening.
A resolution to become an Immigrant Welcoming Conference was introduced at the 2016 Annual Meeting. The vote to begin a year of study on this topic passed with strong support at the meeting. This kicked off a study period in which congregations have been asked to engage in a study process of their choosing. There will be a vote on this resolution at this year’s Annual Meeting. Information about the resolution is available here.
