With details of a Nevada welcome reception finalized, a bulletin insert is now available for churches to download and print for use on Sunday, September 7 as the California-Nevada Annual Conference welcomes Bishop Warner H. Brown, Jr. as its Episcopal leader. He will assume his new duties on September 1, 2008.
The insert includes a brief biography of Bishop Brown, along with information about his Installation Service and two welcome celebrations. Everyone is invited to attend one or all of these events.
The Installation Service will take place on Saturday, October 4 at 2 p.m. at Central United Methodist Church in Stockton, California. The church is located at 3700 Pacific Avenue.
There will be a reception in honor of Bishop Brown on Sunday, October 5 at 4 p.m. at Korean UMC of Santa Clara Valley, 1001 Ginger Lane, San Jose, CA 95128.
A second reception in his honor will be held in Nevada on Saturday, October 11 at 2 p.m., at Carson City UMC, located at 412 West Musser Street.
(Directions from California: Take Interstate 80 East to 395 South to Carson City. When you have reached Carson City, turn right on Musser Street – which is just before the Capitol Building on the left. The church is on the corner of Musser and Division Streets.)
We hope that you will make plans to attend one or more of these celebrations.
