Ohio Conference @ General Synod
You will be at Ground Zero!
On the 50 yard line!
Right behind home plate!
And it will be better than livestreaming!
Be a General Synod Partner
Make a gift to support Ohio Conference General Synod delegates.
Delegates will tweet, blog, Facebook, and email you – from inside the plenary sessions of General Synod 31, direct from Baltimore – June 30-July 4.
That’s their way to thank you for helping cover the expenses of doing the work of the Ohio Conference and of the United Church of Christ. Delegates are volunteers. Costs of their travel, lodging, food on the way there and back again and during Synod come out of their own pockets or end up on their personal charge cards.
Your OCWM support for Ohio Conference helps a little bit. The Conference is able to pay the registration fees. Pam Brown, whose salary comes from OCWM support, registers everyone, tracks the hotel assignments, and secures an enormous amount of advance information. However, that is but a small part of the overall cost that goes with the honor of being a delegate from the great Conference of Ohio, host of the UCC national offices, and one of the two largest delegations to conduct the business of the United Church of Christ.
So, we’re asking you to help them out!
Call for a special offering,
have a noisy loose change collection,
find those languishing funds in your mission budget.
Send them to Ohio Conference marked:
From deep inside the delegate arena at the Baltimore Convention Center, delegates will send you personal insights, share inspirational moments they are having, and offer you an insider’s glimpse of your United Church of Christ at work.
Send those gifts marked “GSPartnerGift” by May 1, so when delegates meet again on May 13 to study General Synod resolutions, I can tell them how much “thank you” stipend we can offer toward the expense of being a General Synod delegate. Include the email, Twitter or other media source into which you want your insider’s scoop to appear. THANK YOU!
John M Gantt, interim Conference Minister
