Action Assembly Charge Conferences


DS Erin Martin and the Columbia District Missional Strategy Team are excited to announce a new format for our 2018 fall charge conference season! Instead of clusters with 2-3 churches, we will be hosting 3 Action Assemblies by geographic area.

 

WHAT IS AN ACTION ASSEMBLY?

An Action Assembly is a gathering across our District Connection designed for congregations to work together and celebrate our common life. This is an important process in growing a strong, renewed, spiritual United Methodist movement. At the Action Assembly Charge Conference, we will celebrate what God is doing among us, vision a future we want and God intends, and commit to action toward that future.

 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

  • roll-call (introductions from a representative of each congregation present)
  • relational 1:1 conversations
  • shared worship (singing & scripture reflection)
  • storytelling
  • breakout groups (business of the charge conference)
  • a call to action
