“We need more potholders now,” says Marj Evans-de-Carpio, the director of Solar Oven Partners. She has sent e-mails to churches across the Dakotas, urging current potholder makers to make and send as many potholders as they can to Annual Conference in Bismarck June 8-10, 2017.
The 24th session of the Dakotas Annual Conference will kick off in 23 days – June 8-10, 2017 in Bismarck, North Dakota. The three-day conference session is a time for Dakotas United Methodists to worship and enjoy fellowship, learn from teaching sessions, seek God’s guidance as we make decisions about ministry direction, determine budgets, ordain and commission clergy, and receive the bishop’s clergy appointments. Annual conference is not just for clergy and lay members, it is for anyone who would like to attend as a guest. Here are six things you will not want to miss.
