2021 Annual Conference

The theme of the 2021 Annual Conference session is:
Building Bridges.

Bridges link otherwise impossible distances, making them an important symbol for those impossible things Christ has made possible in the last year.

While these are still anxious and unknown times, we trust that God is with us on the journey - linking together where we have been and where we go next.

When we build bridges, we make connections. The more connections we make with one another, our churches, and our communities, the better we can adapt to the new post-pandemic world.

We need ears, eyes, and hearts open to the nimble, flexible movements of the Holy Spirit to reach people for Christ in a world of constant disruption, beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
