Welcome to the York District of the Susquehanna Conference of the United Methodist Church
Registration Opens August 4 at Noon
Registration will begin at noon on Tuesday, August 4, 2020 and will run through August 31, 2020.
As mentioned earlier this year, we continue to be thankful for the Spending Plan of the Susquehanna Conference that has for many years subsidized the cost of attendance at Annual Conference. You can imagine the expense of an undertaking of this magnitude is significant and continues to grow each year. Beginning this year there will be a $25 Administrative fee assessed to all attendees. This fee will allow for partial coverage of conducting the work and worship of our Annual Conference meeting. Please know that the Sessions Committee is diligently investigating changes in how we meet to contain costs in the future.
Secure online payment may be made using a credit card or bank transfer by following the easy directions during registration. Payment may also be made by sending a check payable to “Susquehanna Conference UMC” to the attention of AC Registrar. Payment deadline is October 1, 2020.
NOTE: Your registration will not be completed until payment has been received in full.
All registered members will receive an email closer to October 3 with their login information for the online sessions.
Questions should be directed to: Sarah Filizzi, Annual Conference Registrar, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 11th Session of the Susquehanna Annual Conference has been rescheduled for October 3, 2020, as a virtual meeting, we will not be meeting in person.
The theme for 2020 is: Better Together ... One in Ministry to All the World
The Gospel is Resilient: We Need That in 2020
The gospel is resilient, we need that in 2020. Nowhere in Scripture is that seen more clearly that in 2 Corinthians. Beginning August 3rd; Resilient Church Academies is offering tracks to develop skills and strategies to move your church forward. Over three days of live, in-depth exposition, Professor N.T. Wright will unpack how Paul and this early church survived incredible difficulties and came out stronger. Then, participate in twelve in-depth tracks of relevant skills and strategies for church leaders navigating the constraints and opportunities of the new world we live in.
