Following Jesus

2024 Annual Conference Session Report

Over 750 clergy and elected lay delegates gathered at the Safe Credit Union Convention Center in Sacramento from June 7-10 for the 176th Session of the California-Nevada Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. This Sunday, our two lay delegates, Sue and Laurel, and Pastor Sunae will witness how the new spirit moved and blessed everyone as our youth and young adult delegates led worship!

Friends, please do not miss this faithful and important report from the Annual Conference. We will share the General Conference reports and the Core team’s strategic vision as we follow Jesus, thrive in community, and heal the world. Did you know our church’s ministry and mission were highlighted in the Core Team’s report? Congratulations, Lake Merritt UMC!

Our guest preacher was Bishop Gregory Palmer, the longest-serving active United Methodist bishop, who inspired and challenged us about what it means to follow Jesus. Pastor Sunae will be sharing Bishop Palmer’s words preached. Come, friends, join us this Sunday.

Sunday worship begins at 10:15AM.

Join us in person in our sanctuary or watch online via Zoom, Facebook or YouTube Live.
