Bishop Trimble will have two topics, Five Marks of a Methodist, based on a new book of the same title by Steve Harper, and in the afternoon, Poverty to Opportunity.  Bishop Trimble is eager for dialogue and questions from laity and there will be time allowed for that.

There will be worship, communion and music to inspire!

Additionally, there will be three special presentations about exciting ministries:

  • Women at the Well (prison congregation) with Rev. Lee Schott
  • Justice for Our Neighbors (legal help for immigrants) with JFON attorneys Brynne Howard and Ann Naffler
  • Human Trafficking with Teresa Downing, UMW resource person and ISU faculty

Morning coffee and lunch at noon will provide time for fellowship and sharing ideas

Cokesbury bookstore will have a display and all books purchased or ordered that day will have a 30% discount plus free shipping.

There is no fee, just a free will offering, but to facilitate planning please preregister online using this link:   There will be an incentive for all who register in advance!
