Prayer for General Conference

Daily devotions for the 60 days prior to General Conference were developed by The Upper Room

Between January 1, 2016 and May 10, 2016, all 131 annual conferences around the globe offered their prayers on one particular day for the gathering of 864 delegates from around the world.

Holston’s day was Tuesday, April 12, 2016.
(Read The Call's coverage of the day.)
For twenty-four hours, we joined our prayers to the chain of conferences in our global family of The United Methodist Church who are seeking that God’s will be accomplished and that we offer a positive witness as we participate in Christian conferencing.

In Holston, we rang our church bells to mark this day of prayer for the General Conference session in Portland, Oregon from May 10 - May 20.

Please remember the General Conference, all who will attend, the work that will be accomplished, and the ministry of our Church that will continue long after the Conference is adjourned.

Bishop Taylor and our Holston delegation of 6 lay persons and 6 clergy also welcome your prayerful support.
