The music at both evening services was transcendent, coming pretty close – in my human imagination – to what the heavenly host will sound like ...
June 2-4 at Christ UMC Plano
The theme for the 2019 North Texas Annual Conference is “Create!”
In the beginning, when there was nothing but chaos, the voice of our Creator God cut through the darkness and brought forth light. When Abram had settled for a life in Haran, our Covenant God called him out of complacency and created a new and hope-filled trajectory for him and his people. When the old covenant was found broken and powerless to transform the human heart, our Redeeming God created a new covenant, full of grace and truth. When the first disciples were holed up in the upper room, hesitant about what to do next and waiting for direction, our Powerful God sent the Holy Spirit and created a new community – the Church.
Gifted and empowered by that same creative Spirit, we now have the privilege of being co-creators with God, of courageously and creatively meeting people were they are with redeeming and transforming grace, of creating New Spaces where New Faces might gather and be formed in the Way of Jesus.
Keynoters Rev. Junius Dotson, General Secretary of Discipleship Ministries, and Rev. Dr. Audrey Warren, Senior Pastor of First UMC Miami, Florida, will share how United Methodists across the connection have embraced the challenge to create and are making disciples in inspiring and sometimes surprising ways that might just be placing the Church of our day on a new and hope-filled trajectory.
At Annual Conference 2019, we will worship, learn, fellowship, pray, vote, dream and prepare to create!
