Charge Conference Announcement

Pre-Charge Conference – Tuesday, September 28, 6:00 pm
in Safe Harbor Worship Center

Cluster Charge Conference – Sunday, November 14 at 3:00 pm 
Two options for attendance:
• Live-streamed in-person at UUMC Safe Harbor Worship Center.
• Online Zoom option from your own computer at home. (We will make this link available one week prior.)

Charge Conference is the official, yearly meeting of a local church under the direction of the district superintendent. UUMC’s annual charge conference will be held in two parts as outlined above. At the Pre-Charge Conference, voting members of UUMC Leadership Council consider approval of annual reports and forms. As always, this meeting is open to all University UMC family. At the Cluster Charge Conference these completed forms are formally approved and we have a time of intentional learning with our District Superintendent, Rev. Dr. Tom Dolph.

Charge conferences are required to sell church property, elect new leaders, and establish a pastoral housing allowance. These upcoming meetings will also affirm the nominations report and pastoral salaries.

Voting members of the charge conference are the people elected to Leadership Council. All of our church meetings (except for those dealing with personnel matters) are open meetings, so all are welcome to observe.
