2020 is the 22rd year of Celebration of Mission Event gatherings
to support our Conference Mission Ministries,
which include the Conference Mission Projects,
the Church and Community Ministries
and the Volunteers in Mission.
It is recommended that districts schedule their C.O.M.E. on a day separate from District Conferences,
where possible. Celebration of Mission Events that stand alone usually produce
greater results with both monetary and tangible gifts.
