MSC Clergy and Laity Circuits have long served to provide opportunities for lay and clergy leaders of local congregations to meet regularly with colleagues for worship, faith development, spiritual formation, mutual support, accountability, peer learning, resource sharing, mission strategy, and experimental collaboration.
Following conversations with clergy and lay leaders involved in our circuits, we discovered that MSC Circuits were not meeting the needs of everyone. In 2021, we worked together and found a way to rewire our circuits that aims to increase joy, foster connection, and generate trust among clergy and laity throughout the MSC.
The Circuit Rewire allows clergy and laity to choose their own adventure from the topics they explore, how they gather, and how their circuit is led. At each Annual Conference, there will be an open and closed circuit period that will allow participants to unplug from their current circuit and plug into a new one, if they so desire.

***Circuit registration is currently OPEN and will remain open until August 30th, 2022.***
Circuits will then aim to gather together from September 2022 through Annual Conference of 2023 (June 2023).
