Bishop's Special Offerings

Clean water is still an issue in Flint Michigan.  Until ALL of the lead containing water lines are replaced, residents of Flint will have to continue using filtered and bottled water.

Bishop Deborah Lieder Kiesey has asked for funds to support the work of the Michigan Conference in helping to provide filters and clean water.  YOU CAN HELP by donating the amount you would spend on a case of water ($4.00) or the price of a pitcher filter system ($20.00-$45.00)   Donations can be deposited in the large water bottle at the Treasurer’s Office during Annual Conference and will be sent to the Michigan Conference Water for Flint outreach.  To read more about the continuing water problem and the work of the Michigan Annual Conference go to: michiganumc.org

Bus Transportation

  • Bus Transportation: Buses will be available to both the downtown hotels and the south-side hotels in the AM prior to start time of Annual Conference Sessions and in the PM after adjournment each day.  You can choose to leave your car parked either in the Iowa Events Center parking lot during Annual Conference or at your hotel and ride the bus to and from Hy-Vee Hall.

    Bus transportation will not be provided during meal break times to and from the hotels or the Grand View dorm since there is a Concessions area available onsite during meal break times.
