Book Fair at Annual Conference!

Rio Texas MFSA will again sponsor a Book Fair at Annual Conference.  Members and friends box up their gently used religious and spiritual books, and we haul them to Corpus Christi.  It becomes like a treasure hunt at our tables!  People contribute to us according to what they think the books are worth to them.  It has been quite successful in the past, but to make it happen, we need your books!

Contact rcurry@austin.rr.com to donate gently used religious or spiritual books for this MFSA event.

Texas Impact Voter Information

DON’T PUT THAT VOTER REGISTRATION AWAY YET…PRIMARY RUNOFFS ARE MAY 22

Fewer than 1 in 10 registered voters bothered to cast ballots in Texas’ last midterm primary runoffs–the decisive election for many officials, including Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.

This year, there are more than 30 runoffs that span all levels of government. See all the races and candidates here

You DO NOT have to have voted in the primary on March 6 to vote in the runoffs! But if you DID vote in the primary, you can only vote in the runoff of the SAME party you chose in March. You DO NOT have to keep that party affiliation forever…in November, you can vote for candidates of all parties.

And good news: even if you didn’t vote in March because you weren’t registered yet, you can still vote in the runoffs as long as you register by April 23. Check to make sure you are registered here

2018 RMN Convocation

After much anticipation, it is with joy that we are able to share that we have a new location for For Everyone Born – 2018 Convocation!

Join us and hundreds of other United Methodists at the St. Louis Airport Hilton in St. Louis, MO on July 26-29.

It will be a powerful experience to gather so close to the site of the 2019 General Conference as we work for justice and dream about what it means to be a church that is “For Everyone Born.”

We look forward to being able to share the agenda and registration with you soon, but until then, plan to see us in St. Louis!
