Our Parish Charge Conference (annual meeting) tomorrow, here at Bourne UMC, starting with a potluck supper at 5:30, meeting to start at 6:30. Please bring either a main dish or a salad for the potluck dinner. Our District Superintendent asks that we be ready to respond to two questions: 1) If your church has one goal that is practical, concrete, and tangible next year, what would it be? And 2) Does your congregation have Spiritual Disciplines to be transformed by the Spirit? (Prepare to share your concrete and practical spiritual disciplines). Please attend if at all possible.
