An updated version of the formal agreement of Disaffiliation and Withdrawal from the United Methodist Church has been approved by the Michigan Conference Board of Trustees.
On Friday, June 4, members of the 2021 Michigan Annual Conference heard reports about benefits, finances, strategic plans, lay empowerment, trustee matters, and camp operations.
The 2020 Virtual Michigan Annual Conference took place on screens across the state on July 26-28. Bishop David Bard presided from a studio in Lansing. The essential mission was accomplished.
“The report of camping is at the heart of everyone,” said trustee chair Jim LeBaron after a new program approach was shared during the 2020 Corporate Session of The Michigan Annual Conference.
A process for disaffiliation from The UMC, outlined by Michigan Conference Trustees, will be posted Aug.1 on the Conference website.
