Women in Ministry Breakfast at Annual Conference
As we excitedly prepare for our time together at Annual Conference, we have two things to share with you.
You are warmly invited to join together for our annual Women In Ministry Breakfast at Annual Conference. The breakfast is open to all women who serve in professional ministry throughout the conference (deacon / elder / local pastor / Christian educator/ provisional / student). We have varied gifts and callings in diverse settings, and this is our opportunity to celebrate our lives together as women called by God to lead, teach, preach, serve, and minister.

RESOURCES TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY:
The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:
- Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
- Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.
We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
