Welcome to the Arkansas Conference
Welcome to the Arkansas Conference of the United Methodist Church! I’m Laura Merrill, Bishop of this conference, which is made up of over 120,000 faithful people in every corner of the state of Arkansas. We are followers of Christ who work together in diverse ways and places to share his grace with the world. We welcome all who want to learn, live, and serve as his disciples, people transformed by the Holy Spirit and empowered to live out the love of God in our communities.
Connect with your Conference through our weekly emails containing news of the Arkansas Conference and stories for inspiration and celebration!
