Special sessions of United Methodist annual conferences 2022

Translate Page

For a number of U.S. annual conferences, the sessions earlier this year are just the beginning. At least 16 conferences plan to have or have held special sessions to deal mainly with church disaffiliations. Most of these sessions will be online.

Because of a surge in COVID cases earlier this year, the Upper New York Conference delayed its regular session to Oct. 6-8 this year. The session will be online.
