Wonderful Annual Conference!
We want to offer our heartfelt thanks again to the congregation of Hallsport Christian Church for hosting the 31st Association Annual Conference. We were fed and accommodated like kings and queens. Pastor Rich Bendelewski and his wife Vanessa welcomed all with an uplifting time of worship in the Word and song. A tender time of observing communion together followed.
Business and Board meetings proceeded smoothly throughout the first day, which culminated with another wonderful worship service that included a time of group reflection on how much Audre’ Nelson meant to us all. Rev. Jim Nelson was touch to tears, and expressed thanks for all the kind remarks.
Ministry candidate Les Leet began the final day of conference with a challenging message to us all to “preach the word!”. While Association business was dispatched on a timely schedule, it was the times of food, fun, and fellowship that really made it a wonderful annual conference.
