The June 12-15 session of Annual Conference will return to Lakeside Chautauqua with a new quadrennial theme, Bearing Fruit that Lasts: Called, Committed, Connected.
Using John 15:1-17 (CEB) as our guiding scripture passage, we will explore what it means to be called and equipped as followers of Jesus Christ, highlight the joy of making a commitment to take up residence in God’s love, and to extend that love to others, and underscore the importance of being connected to God and to our neighbors if we are to bear fruit by making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Bishop Tracy S. Malone will give the message during the Service of Commemoration and Holy Communion, and the Service of Commissioning and Ordination. Bishop Michael McKee of the North Texas Conference will be our guest speaker for each of the morning worship services.
A week of Summer Camp at one of our East Ohio Camps events is a powerful, life-changing experience.
The break from their regular routine allows campers to think about their future and to discover the truth that God loves them and has an amazing plan for their lives. They explore nature, participate in new adventures, and test their limits in a healthy environment surrounded by the beauty of God’s creation. Campers form friendships that provide connections that help them navigate the challenges of life.
Register today to reconnect with friends, and to meet new ones.
Anyone registering by May 1 will save $20 on their camp fee and will receive a limited edition Summer Camp 2017 T-shirt that is not available in the camp store.
