Appeal For Peace in Russia-Ukraine Conflict from Global Ministries

The General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church is deeply troubled by the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and the ominous implications it has for escalating tensions between Russia and Western nations. The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), the humanitarian relief arm of Global Ministries, is in communication with partners in the region and actively exploring the coordination of humanitarian response in Ukraine.

Information About The Current Landscape and Options For The Future

Over the past two weeks, Bishop Mueller met with clergy and designated lay leadership in congregations in all five districts to discuss the current landscape and options for the future of the United Methodist Church. During each of these gatherings, the most common request was for follow-up resources to be developed for leaders to share with their church members. The presentations developed by Bishop Mueller and the Conference staff, along with the questions asked at each of these gatherings, have been gathered and prayed over to create a resource for all church leaders to utilize.

Assembly 2022

Assembly is one of our longest as well as the last youth events for the year. Assembly provides a break in the summer, allows for deeper relationship building between youth, and helps strengthen and nurture them in their relationship with Christ.

Assembly is a week of discipleship featuring awesome worship, awesome people, and one awesome God. It’s joining together with others your age to learn, grow, and laugh. It’s waking up and worshiping through word and song. It’s coming to an event and leaving with a “family”. It’s an opportunity to open up, to get real, to focus. It’s a chance to shift your thoughts, your actions, and your life from things of this world to the heart of Jesus. After all, true worship takes place when all people within a community seek the presence of God and are accepting of each other. That’s the biggest part of Assembly.

UPDATE:  Early Bird Registration for Assembly Ends THIS SUNDAY! On MONDAY, the price jumps from $245 to $295! 
Jr. And Sr. High Assembly will be held at Hendrix College, July 24-28, 2022.

Bishop Mueller’s Daily Devotional

Memorial Day 2022

I am more profoundly grateful with each passing year of my life for those who gave their lives defending our nation. Each one made the ultimate sacrifice so that others could live. Each one of them had a life filled with endless plans and possibilities that ended far too soon. Each one was cut down in the prime of life. Each one left behind family and friends with broken hearts and unending grief. May we always remember them.. May we always give thanks to God for their service. And may we live in ways that honor their memories.
