The charge conference forms for the fall 2015 charge conferences are now available on line by clicking here. (That is except for the trustee and parsonage report forms which will be available shortly.) We are requesting that all forms be completed and submitted on line using the charge conference portal (similar to last year submission procedure) to the district office ten days prior to the scheduled charge conference. The last charge conference training at the conference will be August 20 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. There will be a training offered on the Washington East District on Tuesday, August 25 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at Mt. Zion UMC (27108 Mt. Zion Church Road, Mechanicsville, MD). Please contact the district office if you plan to attend, so we have a general idea how many to expect. However, if you can still attend the training even if the office has not been notified. The revised charge conference schedule has been emailed to pastors and church offices. By the end of next week the agenda will also be mailed to pastors and church offices. If you have any charge conference questions please contact the district administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org), as always, sooner rather than later.
