2019 Introductions and Invitations

AC 2019

The 2019 Mountain Sky Annual Conference will be at the Billings Hotel and Convention Center and the Red Lion Hotel in Billings, Montana from June 13-16. The theme for this year is "Love. Heal. Thrive: Rebuilding a Worthy Temple." 

Annual conference is an opportunity for us to gather as a church and dream together about ways in which we can better live into Beloved Community as United Methodists. As you prepare for this annual gathering with prayer and reflection, we also ask that you read through the following letters from leaders within the Mountain Sky Conference.
