As we gather together as a Mountain Sky Area for the 2018 Annual Conference Session, we will continue to focus on our quadrennial theme of "Living Into Beloved Community" and explore what it means to engage with our neighbors who experience homelessness and insecurity in their lives. As part of the Annual Conference theme “Safety, Homelessness, and Justice,” we will engage in education, direct service, and advocacy.
On Friday morning, all conference attendees will immerse themselves in a morning of service, education and advocacy in the Ogden area focusing on our missional theme of safety, homelessness, and justice. The immersion project will begin with a brief worship and commissioning for the day before dividing up into smaller groups to serve and learn together. Some projects will take place at the convention center and others will be at locations throughout Ogden with transportation provided. Hands-on immersion projects will include options for people of various skillsets and physical abilities. Lunch is included with the immersion project. Information about specific immersion projects will be available by mid-March. Individuals will sign up for the immersion project of their choice through the conference registration.
Friday evening will be a time to celebrate the mission focus of the Mountain Sky Area through fun activities, as well as a time for fellowship, eating a variety of catered foods, and entertainment. This will follow worship in the amphitheater. There will be a Tongan Haka and dancing, the Tug-o-Love to raise money for disaster relief trailers and Angola pastors, and musical entertainment. You won't want to miss this fun filled evening celebration.
