Annual Conference Promotions

Jewelry for Youth

For the past three years Prema Devadhar has led a promotion to sell new and gently used jewelry to benefit Imagine No Malaria at the Annual Conference.  We hope you had a chance to visit this display.  Due to the success of this endeavor, now that the INM promotion is done Prema would like to continue these jewelry sales with the proceeds benefiting youth and young adult ministry programs such as Taizé.

Please post this flier in your church and get the word out about this project.  If you would like to donate any jewelry, please send it to the District Office by June 1 and we will see that it gets to Prema.  Thank you so much for your support.

UMCOR Health Kits

 

During this year's Annual Conference, folks will have the chance to stop by the assembly table and put together health kits.  The goal is to assemble 1,000 health kits between Thursday morning and lunchtime on Saturday.  It takes about ten minutes to assemble a kit, stop the assembly table at any time.  Learn more here.

 

Box Lunch & Spaghetti Dinner

First UMC in Manchester is well on their way to making over 900 sandwiches for Annual Conference.  There are already pre-orders for over 850 sandwiches and 95 reservations for the free Spaghetti Dinner on Thursday evening, June 15th!!   This year 80% of the profit from the Box Lunch will be used to pay Mission Shares, 10% to support their Mission Team, and 10% for their Christmas Dinner Ministry.  Thank you for blessing so many ministries!
