Preparing for revival: Preview events coming in October

AR Conference_Revival Card FRONTMark your calendar now to attend one of five special events that will provide a preview of resources and materials your local church can use to prepare to experience spiritual revival, the first step of the Bishop’s Mission Plan.

These preview events will guide attendees through options for worship, study, disciple formation and more. All Arkansas UMCs are encouraged to participate in this intentional season of preparation for spiritual revival beginning in January 2016, and the preview events will provide ways to help congregations get started.

One event will be held in each district. The experience, though, is not specific to your district, so if you cannot make the date of the preview nearest you, feel free to attend one of the others. All preview events are on Sunday afternoons with the exception of the Little Rock gathering, which is a Saturday morning.

Oct. 4: First UMC Arkadelphia, 3 p.m.
Oct. 11: Goddard UMC Fort Smith, 3:30 p.m.
Oct. 17: St. James UMC Little Rock, 10:30 a.m.
Oct. 18: First UMC Jonesboro, 3:30 p.m.
Oct. 25: First UMC Stuttgart, 4 p.m.
