Dear Asbury Family,       


Greetings from the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference Delegation to General and Jurisdictional Conference, 2020. 

Many of you have asked how you an learn more about the upcoming General Conference in May 2020.  Here are three ways you can prepare for General Conference:

1.      1. Go to https://www.resourceumc.org/en/churchwide/general-conference2020   and read news and other articles.  Eventually all proposed legislation will be posted there.  

2.      2. Pray for our Eastern Pennsylvania Delegation.  A list of our delegation members with email addresses is found on the back of this page.  This roster is also posted on our conference website  epaumc.org.  If you would like to send an individual note of encouragement or ask a question, please do so.  I am available to answer your questions as best I can     601-442-3140
