Annual Conference Report:

Witnesses of a New Thing


Clergy and Lay members of the California-Nevada Annual Conference gathered on Thursday, June 15th to begin the activities for the 175th Session of the Annual Conference in Sacramento.  This year, the session events began on Thursday and closed on Sunday to recognize Monday’s Juneteenth observance, now a federal holiday.

Sue Dickey, Laurel Williams, and Pastor Sunae came back inspired and challenged to share the work that we’ve done with our leadership, both clergies, laity, and the conference staff under the leadership of our Interim Bishop Sally Dick.  In the midst of the United Methodist Church experiencing the church disaffiliation, our own Bishop Minerva Carcano’s suspension, church closures, and membership decline, as well as church plants and how our churches are bringing God’s “sozo”, salvation, and redemption here and now, we were reminded that even then, even now,….God is doing new things in our lives.  Come friends, join us as we hear the Annual Conference Session report and give thanks to God.


Join us in person or via Zoom or FaceBook Live. 

Sunday service begins at 10:15AM.
