Bishop’s Day in the Greenwood District

Bishop Jonathan Holston continues his district visits this year to meet with pastors and laity concerning the way forward for churches in the SC  Conference.

October 28 is the day Bishop Holston will be in the Greenwood District. Pastors and a leadership team from their churches are expected to join with the Bishop at St. Mark UMC Rivers St. Campus, 1633 Rivers St., Greenwood, on Saturday, October 28, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

This year’s theme is By Faith, On Mission, Together. Bishop Holston will spend the morning with church leadership teams thinking about how we equip our congregations to walk faithfully into God’s vision for God’s church. Teams will have the opportunity to hear what churches are learning from the Forward Focus process, and the day will close with Holy Communion as we celebrate our connection to one another and to Jesus Christ.

Pastors are reminded that this is the October district clergy meeting. Attendance is expected.
