Charge Conference

The charge conference is the annual business meeting of a local United Methodist Church where, among many things, the budget is adopted, officers are elected, and the previous year of ministry is celebrated. For the complete description of a charge conference from the Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church can be found on the UMC.org website.

Bethel’s 2019 Charge Conference is set for November 10 at 2pm in the sanctuary.

Members and non-members are encouraged to attend.

Members are able to vote on all matters brought up.

During the elections process, nominations are allowed from the floor of the conference session.

Nominations and Leadership Development

The process is underway. On September 17, the church council elected a nominations committee to receive and process nominations for leadership in the church, which will be voted on for election in the upcoming charge conference on November 10 at 1pm at Bethel.

The Nominations and Leadership Development Committee is diligently working to fill the leadership and committee positions before the November 10 charge conference where the officers will be elected. All are welcome to come.  All members of the church are allowed to vote at the charge conference.  Nominations are allowed from the floor of the charge conference.  Be in attendance, be engaged, be invested, and make disciples who make disciples!

The committee is just getting underway, and is on a tight schedule, so if you’d like to nominate someone for a position, please fill out the nominations form here.
