2022 Annual Conference

The West Virginia Annual Conference 2022 session will be held Thursday, June 9-Sunday, June 12.

The theme for our session is Building Bridges: Making Connections.

The many beautiful bridges in our conference area facilitate relationships between people and provide life-giving supplies to be shared among communities. Where there is a bridge, no one is alone.

As Christians we seek to foster life-giving relationships. Especially in prolonged periods of crisis, our connections are a source of hope. The more connections we make with one another, our churches, and our communities, the more hope we can manifest as we work within a new normal.

Day of Service

We want to celebrate our local churches, and the ways that you are living into your call to be bridge builders in your community!

Therefore we are setting aside Thursday, June 9th as The Day of Service, a day to build bridges in our communities, and to engage in relationship-oriented missions.
