Retirees & Saints Among Us

On Friday, June 4, 2021, the clergy of the Mountain Sky Conference met virtually for an Executive Session.  Traditionally, this meeting is held during Annual Conference, but because AC2021 will be in October, we needed to attend to the business that affects July 1st appointments.  (CLICK HERE to read the complete list on our website)


In addition to other business items that are required by the Book of Discipline, we took some moments to celebrate our clergy who enter into retired status this year.  We celebrate with:
