Council Meeting and Charge Conference Coming

Charting St. Stephen UMC's course for the coming year will take place Sunday, Nov. 8, at two meetings. 

First, the monthly All Church Pot Luck Lunch & Church Council will take place at
12:30 p.m. after worship. Everyone is welcome to both the lunch and the council meeting.

Next, the annual Charge Conference will take place at 6:00 p.m. at Ridgewood Park UMC, 6445 E. Lovers Lane in Dallas. We are part of a "cluster" of churches that will meet. According to United Methodist rules, the Charge Conference is the annual official business meeting of the congregation. We will report our activities to Metro District Superintendent, the Rev. Cammy Gaston, and take any votes required by our church law, the Book of Discipline, for administration in the coming year. This includes voting on the slate of congregation leaders selected by the Nominating and Leadership Development Committee led by our pastor, the Rev. Nancy DeStefano.

These meetings are essential to organizing our church administration to fulfill the ministry and mission of St. Stephen UMC. Everyone who can is encouraged to attend both meetings in order to receive information and to vote on leadership and finances. Those who can't attend are asked to pray for St. Stephen's leadership and for the future of our congregation.
