Starting January 1, 2017, each annual conference of the United Methodist Church will take a week of praying our way forward on behalf of the whole church. The week following our Annual Conference, May 7 - 13, 2017, will be our conference’s opportunity to pray for the whole church and the Commission on a Way Forward.
