Connecting Points events are all about conversation, cookies and connection!
- Connect to other United Methodists in your area: When we had our town hall meetings to gather information for our strategic plan, many of you expressed interest in getting to know members of other United Methodist churches in your area to learn about their current ministries and to find ways to partner in new ministries. These gatherings will provide a forum to do so.
- Connect to your Mission: These meetings will allow you to have conversation with your district staff and each other around topics that are crucial to our mission and ministry together as United Methodists such as what makes us distinctly United Methodist and how to discuss difficult topics, including the 2019 Special Session of General Conference.
- Connect to your District Staff: Your Pastor and Pastor Parish relations team or Unified Leadership board is invited to spend twenty minutes with the District Superintendent or Assistant to check in and discuss the pastor and church’s yearly review and any current needs of the church. The Pastor will then be invited to say for an additional 10 minutes. This half hour meeting will serve as the pastor’s yearly One-on-One with the Superintendent, so please plan to attend.
Your church is invited to sign up to attend:
-the large gathering for all pastors and all church laity
-a one-on-one session for your PPRC and pastor
