First UMC – Austin Meeting on General Conference 2016

What to Expect at General Conference 2016 Sunday

September 27th 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.

Murchison Chapel

Presented by Jay Brim

Every four years, delegates from all over the world meet to decide on law and policy for the United Methodist Church.  Next year that meeting will be in May in Portland, Oregon.  Jay Brim is Chancellor of the Rio Texas Annual Conference (essentially the Bishop’s lawyer), a member of Westlake UMC, and a lay delegate to the 2016 General Conference.  He will inform us about the issues that General Conference is likely to address.  There is no charge for the course and there are no materials to purchase.
