2021 AC Session Reminders
As we launch several annual conference session-related worship services and business meetings this week, below are some friendly reminders to note in preparation as we actively engage in holy conferencing:
- The 2021 Session of the Mississippi Conference Guidebook App is the hub of annual conference details and updates. Here is the link to the Guidebook App and instructions if you have not already downloaded it onto your device. Please download the app as soon as possible.
- Clergy and lay members to the annual conference, you should have received an email Tuesday, June 8 on upcoming training through GNTV with a Voter ID. In light of gathering online, we’ll also be voting online and your attendance in the online training is essential to making sure we carry out the business of God’s kingdom expeditiously and with excellence. Those without email on file in your conference record will receive the Voter ID and other corelating information via snail mail. If you have a question, concern or have not received this information, contact your district office. *It is extremely important that ALL voting members of the 2021 Session of the Mississippi Annual Conference attend one of the GNTV Voting Orientation and Training webinars.
