A note from Conference Minister Dick Barrett: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be holding one large pastor gathering in the fall as we have during the past several years. In place of the one gathering we are planning on meeting in person in smaller groups. Taking into account social distancing practices, we will gather during the regionally scheduled pastor peer meet­ings, beginning in August in the Wayne County and northeast re­gions, and in September in the northwest and west central re­gions.
