Annual Conference Information

Cans & Kits

It has been a longstanding tradition to collect Kits at Annual Conference for United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). UMCOR is not collecting kits in 2021, but serving our neighbors is an important part of Annual Conference. So, this year, across the conference we will be collecting "kits" that will stay local and serve our neighbors.
