Annual Conference

I will be leaving for Annual Conference in Hampton tomorrow morning. Though the conference does not conclude until Sunday, I will return to Martinsville on Saturday evening. I appreciate Paul Geib serving as the representative to Annual Conference for First UMC. For further information about all that is taking place in Hampton, and if you are interested in a live stream of the event, you may go to this link: https://www.vaumc.org/AC2018.

Jesus' ministry of parables is before us as we worship on Sunday (Mark 4:26-34,) recalling "Jesus, the Storyteller." I look forward to this time of worship and to honoring and remembering our fathers on this Father's Day.
