UMCOR Kit Collection

It has been a longstanding tradition to collect Kits at Annual Conference for United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). 

We have four drop-off locations (one in each region) and we put the locations on the map to help you find the one closest to you.  Please note the dates/times for dropoff as they vary by location. 

We will be collecting the three official UMCOR Relief Kits. Instructions on how to assemble the kits can be found below.

    AC 2024 Theme

    Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson is excited to announce the theme of the 242nd session of the Virginia Annual Conference is A Conference in Three Movements. This theme emerges from the belief that there are three principal movements of the Holy Spirit taking place in the present era of the church:


    1. The theological movement from prevenient grace to sanctification. This is the movement of the Holy Spirit in the human heart.
    2. The historical movement of Methodism captured in our past, lived in our present, and pointed toward our future. This is the movement of the Holy Spirit in the church.
    3. The missional movement from gathered spaces into all the world. This is the movement of the Holy Spirit in community.
