District Gatherings with Bishop Ward

Dis­trict gath­er­ings are sched­uled for laity and cler­gy to meet with Bish­op Hope Mor­gan Ward. The gath­er­ings will focus on the 2013–2014 North Car­oli­na Con­fer­ence theme: “From Strength to Strength: Thrive!”

Laity who serve as lead­ers in local church­es are urged to attend along with cler­gy as we think togeth­er about ques­tions such as: How do lay and cler­gy thrive in dis­ci­ple­ship and lead­er­ship of con­gre­ga­tions? How do con­gre­ga­tions thrive in mis­sion and min­istry? How can we pray, think and work toward the thriv­ing of all peo­ple and of the whole creation?

The first gath­er­ing will be held in the Cap­i­tal Dis­trict on Aug. 11. Click on Dis­trict Dates for gath­er­ing loca­tions. To reg­is­ter, go to the Dis­trict web­page. If cler­gy and laity in one dis­trict can­not be present for their dis­trict meet­ing, feel free to attend anoth­er dis­trict meet­ing. All gath­er­ings will be on Sun­days from 3–5 p.m.
