Well, we made it through our Annual Conference entirely online! We appreciate everyone who logged in and participated. Thank you! I love our Conference of churches and the joy of working together for Christ’s kingdom!
Remember that we will post all our sessions on the website so you can watch them on demand. This includes the morning devotions, the Break Out seminars, and evening services –and by the way, you are free to use them in your local church. Someone asked if they could replay Jay Forseth’s message from Tuesday night and the answer is “Of course!” Here is the link: www.annualconference.online.
