2019 Annual Conference

A few highlights from Annual Conference

Missional Report – We started our Annual Conference by celebrating a variety of Holy Spirit breakthroughs in our midst—ways in which Minnesota United Methodists are daring to reach new people and love boldly. A few examples: The small congregation of Lydia Zion UMC in Jordan started a new bilingual worship service to welcome Hispanic people in its community; it has resulted in several new professions of faith. Many churches are spreading the gospel by offering online worship and seeing fruits from their efforts. And Simpson UMC in Minneapolis is closing its doors and donating its property to Simpson Housing Services, which will build a new state-of-the-art facility to serve the homeless.
