This monthly live Zoom gathering affords United Methodists the opportunity to interact about a variety of interests. Each month a featured guest will be on the program to focus on a particular topic.
The first meeting is Thursday, September 15th from 7-8pm. The theme is “A Future Filled with Hope” (Jeremiah 29:11). UMsConnected leaders will interact with participants regarding ways God is at work in the New Awakening, and in the emerging UMC. We will also explore the role UMsConnected can play in the emergence, seeking your input about ways we might do that.
