Annual Conference Begins Sunday
  [More]

Please remember that our Holston Annual Conference begins this Sunday afternoon at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina. Annual Conference is a yearly gathering of both clergy and laity representatives from all of the churches of the Holston area. This year's theme is "Always" based on Hebrews 13:8: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Holy conferencing is both for spiritual renewal and to conduct the business of the conference. Highlights include ministry area reports, the mission offering and blessing the hands-on mission kits, the memorial service and clergy retirement service. At the close of conference, new pastors are ordained or commissioned and Bishop Mary Virginia Taylor will set the clergy appointments for 2014-15. Please be in prayer for the Annual Conference and our laity and clergy.
As a reminder, all of the clergy will be at Annual Conference from Sunday through Thursday. If an immediate pastoral concern arises, please contact the main church office during regular business hours or use the new clergy on-call number 320-9100. You may need to leave a message with the on-call number as cellphones do not always reliably work at the lake.

40 Days of Prayer for Transformation
  [More]

The United Methodist churches of the Knoxville District are invited to join in 40 days of Prayer for Transformation from May 22-June 30.

The invitation is extended to every United Methodist individual in the Knoxville District to be in prayer over these 40 days, seeking the transformation of themselves as well as the whole congregation. Specifically, we are seeking for a single-minded focus on the mission given to us by Jesus Christ our Lord: "Go make disciples." This mission focus primarily emphasizes initiating relationships with those who do not know Christ and guiding them into a personal relationship with him. Participants are asked to include the following prayers as they pray each day.

(Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane),
"Father...not my will but yours be done." (Luke 22:42)

John Wesley's Covenant Prayer
(For a church to pray together)

We are no longer our own, but yours.
Put us to what you will, rank us with who you will.
Put us to doing, put us to suffering.
Let us be employed by you or laid aside for you,
Exalted for you or brought low by you.
Let us be full, let us be empty.
Let us have all things, let us have nothing.
We freely and heartily yield all things
To your pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
You are ours and we are yours. So be it.
And the covenant which we have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
