Annual Conference is a conference that happens annually. – Perd Hapley
This year’s Annual Conference was at the Coldwater Free Methodist Church, which actually serves well-tempered water thanks to modern technology. Many Rev’s* and Del’s** were there to observe this yearly gathering of Free Methodists in Southern Michigan. A grand time of celebration, encouragement, and seeing friends who serve together in ministry.
Every year I come away feeling a ton of encouragement and a load of gratitude. So many of these fine people have helped shape me and continue to do so. We saw 6 ordinations and heard solid testimonies of how God is doing a new thing in our conference churches.
Sadly I had to miss Lexi’s beach day, but Facebook (when it wasn’t down) told the story through pictures. Now home for a few hours before heading out to day two. I look forward with a mix of anticipation and exhaustion.
