The purpose of charge conference is to celebrate the ministries of the local congregation, affirm our plans for the future, approve candidates for ministry, set the salaries of the clergy, and approve new leadership for the coming year. In so many ways, Charge Conference has changed, but yet it remains an opportunity to celebrate the ministries of the local churches.
This year, we will be sharing in a Cluster Charge Conference with 13 other congregations at Custer Road United Methodist Church at 4:00 pm on November 1, 2015. Refreshments will be served at 3:30pm just outside the sanctuary.
Our charge conference will be a worship service wherein we have the chance to hear an inspiring word from our District Superintendent, Dr. Ron Henderson. The service will include great music and a video highlighting the ministry of the churches in our area. Charge Conference will be conducted by a consent agenda wherein our work is completed in a single motion.
Please make plans to attend. We will all meet at Custer Road UMC, 6601 Custer Road Plano, TX 75023, and share in this special time together. Our entire congregation is invited to attend so please encourage others to participate.
