2023 Virginia Annual Conference
United in Mission; serving together
Mission Opportunities provided throughout the Annual Conference allow the churches to maximize the impact in transforming the world through the connectional system. Each year, Virginia Conference offers Mission Opportunities for the 1,100 churches to ‘Unite in Mission’ as we serve our Lord together. Below you will find information on how we, serving together, can become a ‘blessing to this world’ (Gen 12:3).
When all 1,100 churches in VAUMC come ‘Nurturing Together’ we can make a significant impact! This year’s offering will be focused on addressing two domestical needs and the nurturing Christian leaders around the world. Join us in this united effort!
AC Collection is one way to ‘Think Globally and Act Locally.’ We will continue our collection on a district level, and share the collections both worldwide and locally. UMCOR Kits will be delivered to Mission Central, while the cans will be shared on district level.
During the Conference we will host Red Cross Blood Drive, Menstrual Hygiene Kit Assembely, and a Rise Against Hunger project. We will see how #joining hands together will make a big impact!
On Thursday evening (June 15th) join us for a Mission Social, where we invite mission partners and ask church leaders to connect with each mission. You may support a mission you are already involved in, or engange in new opportunties. Desserts will be provided for all who join the social.
A fun 5K Run/Walk during the Annual Conference. The wellbeing of our leaders determines the health of our mission! Join our effort to encourage our members to be on this journey together!
Virtual Option to participate in this race will be offered!
