Clergy and Lay Members of the California-Nevada Conference of The United Methodist Church, Grace and peace to you in the name of Christ, our Lord!
In an effort to continue to do the work of the 2021 Annual Conference Session in a manner that responds to your request that we take advantage of the benefits of virtual means of gathering , our Legislative Section will conduct its work virtually on October 8, 2021 from 6 pm – 7:30 pm PT.
With a smaller number of legislative items to be considered, there will be only one legislative section and Mark Wharff, ACS Secretary, will be leading that single legislative section.
All clergy and lay members of the Annual Conference will receive a zoom link for the Legislative Section and all related materials. Additional information on such matters as voter IDs and voter training opportunities will also be sent in the next few days.
The Legislative Section will be live streamed and observer viewing information will be shared well in advance of October 8th as well.
It is a joy and privilege to serve with you in God's mission of transforming grace. The gatherings of the Annual Conference Session are a time to celebrate what God is doing through you, servant leaders of Jesus the Christ. I know that our October 8th Legislative Section will be blessed by God as you prayerfully gather to discern God’s vision for our mission and ministry as the California-Nevada Conference.
Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño is Resident Bishop of the San Francisco area and the California-Nevada Conference of The United Methodist Church.
