Western North Carolina Conference Event Cancellations:
- Annual Conference 2020
- Bishop Leeland and the Cabinet have made the decision to postpone the Western North Carolina Annual Conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of our traditional three-day event, the decision has been made to hold a one-day Annual Conference session on the afternoon of Saturday, August 8 at Lake Junaluska. Additional details about the gathering and plans for the clergy session and the ordering of ministry service will be announced soon. Alternative options continue to be explored, in the event that restrictions on gathering remain in place through the summer months. Any updates will be communicated as decisions are made and finalized.
