2023 Laity Session and Luncheon Update



Hello, Mississippi Annual Conference,
This is LaToya Redd Thompson, Mississippi Annual Conference lay leader, inviting you to two laity-centered events in association with annual conference.

The first event is the board of laity-sponsored annual informational session for lay members of annual conference and all interested laity, also known as the laity session. The meeting will be held virtually on Saturday, June 24, 2023 beginning at 10:00 a.m
We will discuss the work of conference committees and will celebrate ministry occurring in local churches throughout our conference. Additionally, we will discuss the #BeUMC campaign, learn about Discipleship in the Marketplace and will hear words from Bishop Sharma D. Lewis during her first time with us. In preparation for the session, please review the agenda beforehand. 

The board of laity hopes to see you for the sharing of this important information Saturday, June 24 at 10:00 a.m.

The second event we want to invite you to is the laity luncheon on Wednesday, June 28, at noon. We will fellowship together in Tupelo at the Cadence Bank Arena Conference Center and will hear from Rev. Tim Thompson as well as others who are involved in the ministry of Lighthouse Congregations and who have decided to remain United Methodist. 
Registration is required for this luncheon by June 8. The cost is $38 per plate, and the menu is a choice of grilled salmon or fried chicken (choice will be made during registration). Click here to register for the Laity Luncheon.
If you have any questions about either of these events, please email Sarah Halford at shalford@mississippi-umc.org.  

See you soon.
