Fact Sheets to Tell the Stories of Major Initiatives

Click Here to View Fact Sheet FRESH EXPRESSIONS

Fresh Expressions is the first in a series of brief fact sheets about our developing major conference initiatives. The fact sheets, a communication effort designed by Bishop Carter, will provide a quick overview describing:

What is the initiative?

Where are we now in its development?

Where are we going with it?

The purpose is to inform our key leaders and others about these initiatives not only for their own information, but also to provide leaders with answers to "What’s going on?" questions asked by their constituents.

The fact sheets are being produced by the Strategic Leadership Team and our Communications Department. They will be published on a regular basis, and future topics include:

The Race Conversation

Teaching Churches

Fresh Invitation to the Gospel

General Conference 2016

There are some great stories around our major initiatives, and we are excited about telling them. If you have any feedback or suggestions regarding the fact sheets, please send them to Gretchen Hastings at ghastings@flumc.org.

The Journeys of Paul        



The Journeys of Paul

with Bishop Ken Carter and Guest Teacher Dr. Waite Willis


An Invitation from Bishop Carter

The pilgrimage to Israel in May, 2014, with my friend, the beloved teacher Bob Tuttle, and friends from across the Florida Conference and beyond was a wonderful time of fellowship.

I would like to invite you to join me as we sail through the Mediterranean following in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul through Greece, Turkey and Italy for 13 days departing on November 7, 2015. I am excited to have Dr. Waite Willis from Florida Southern College join us as our guest teacher. I am inviting pastors, teachers and members of our churches to join us in this profound experience of travel, study, worship and fellowship aboard the Rhapsody of the Seas.

I hope you will make this pilgrimage with us in 2015!

One of hosts of this cruise will be our District Superintendent, Gary Spencer. If you aren't going as a member of your Pastor's Group, and If you would like to be a part of Dr. Spencer's Atlantic Central District group, please note on your reservation that you would like to be part of Group #31548. Also, please send the DS an email to let him know you are registering.

For more information and to register go to: The journeys of Paul

Bishop's Clergy Gathering October 6-7
 

We will be gathering together on October 6-7 at the Life Enrichment Center. The gathering begins at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon and will conclude with lunch on Wednesday. Our theme for this year is HEART 2 HEART: WE ARE NOT ALONE; and, as in years past, we are anticipating a wonderful time of renewal and connection!

Our speakers for this event include:
Bishop Carter
Jim Harnish
Geraldine McClellan
Gary Marcelin

Jeremy Hearn will lead our worship, and the team has been hard at work putting together a program that we believe will continue to unify us even more strongly than we have been in the past.

With the event now less than two months away, it is time to register! Would you please do that today? Just follow this link directly to the registration page.

We look forward to seeing you in Leesburg!
The Clergy Gathering 2015 Program Team
