Annual Conference 2019
The California-Nevada Annual Conference will meet June 19-22 at the Hyatt Double Tree Hotel in Modesto, California. Attending from Eureka First UMC will be Pastor Kathryn and Rob Dunning and Lay Members Dan and Linda Dionne. The theme of this year’s conference is “With Jesus in the Boat.” This meeting is where the business of our UMC Conference takes place including: persons are elected to various boards and agencies, an annual budget is adopted, reports are heard, a memorial service for pastors and spouses who have died during the previous year is held, much worship is shared, new pastors are commissioned and ordained, and appointments of pastors to local churches are “fixed.” Any interested persons are welcome to attend the worship services and meetings during Annual Conference. Our Annual Conference covers a large geographical area ranging from Bakersfield in the south to the Oregon border of California in the north, the Pacific Ocean in the west and the Utah border of Nevada in the east. An equal number of clergy and elected lay members take part in the business transactions of the Annual Conference.
