It's that time again where the flowers are blooming, the trees are budding, and Lakeside is just around the corner.  Ushers, pages, and alternate ushers play a vital role in keeping Annual Conference running smoothly and you do not have to be a delegate to usher.  
If ushering is something you have done in the past - Thanks....if it is something you are prayerfully considering - contact us at usherwoc@butter.toast.net .  
We look forward to hearing from you!

All In Community Events

3 Ways to experience what it means to be 

"All In"... 

God is calling The United Methodist Church to help people involved with the criminal justice system, whether they are victims or offenders. All involved need to hear God's offer of healing and restoration. The West Ohio Conference is inviting you and your congregation to consider how you can join the movement to become part of the redemptive community. Learn more about West Ohio's new 'All In Community' and how your church can get involved during the Annual Conference Luncheon on Monday, June 9, 12:00-1:30pm at Wesley Lodge (register here). Experience the life-changing Horizon Community inside the walls of Chillicothe Correctional Institute during a one-day immersion event on June 21 or August 16, or go even deeper with a two-day event July 19-20. For more information, visit the All In Community webpage at www.westohioumc.org/allincommunity. Click here for flyer.
