District Establishing Conference
We’re #1!
(Soon to be Northern Skies)
District Establishing Conference
April 21, 2018, 1-3 p.m.
Marquette Hope Connection Center

and West Michigan Conferences undergo the merger process. Establishing Conference attendees were given foam #1 fingers and fans to get in the spirit .They are encouraged to pass the items on to their pastor or other person attending the Michigan Annual Conference where they will be used at the district breakfast (and perhaps for other nefarious purposes).

The Conference elected a Vision Team to discern what the new district needs organizationally to assist our congregation in “Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” The team will be disbanded following the District Conference November when the new structure will be approved and a Leadership Team elected.

Also on the agenda were nominations to UMC Discipline required district committees, and words from DS Scott Harmon, Michigan Conference Director of Jackie Raineri, and Camp Michigamme Director Erica Thomas.

 

Folks attending the Marquette District Establishing Conference voted to name our new district “Northern Skies.” The name will become official on January 1, 2019, but we will begin to use it following the vote at the 2018 Michigan Annual Conference in June. Our “Number 1” status comes from the arbitrary naming of districts for administrative purposes while the Detroit and West Michigan Conferences undergo the merger process. Establishing Conference attendees were given foam #1 fingers and fans to get in the spirit .They are encouraged to pass the items on to their pastor or other person attending the Michigan Annual Conference where they will be used at the district breakfast (and perhaps for other nefarious purposes).

We’re Number 1!
