In June, we’ll be returning to the Showplex Center at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup for the 2018 Pacific Northwest Annual Conference Session. We'll continue to explore the quadrennial theme, "Do this and you will live!", with a new focusing question, "Do what?"
Our 2018 session will start early on Friday the 22nd, registration will be open on Thursday (the 21st) at 3pm for those who arrive early. We’ll conclude on Sunday, June 24th, midday.
Registration is $180 and is inclusive of lunch and dinner on June 22nd and 23rd. May 31st is the deadline to register at the best rate. Click here for information about Childcare, Children's Conference, and registration for children.
A printed version of the pre-conference handbook is available for an additional $10 through the registration process. The digital version will be available on this website to download when it is published.
In the coming weeks more information will be posted here as it becomes available. For continuing news and information about the upcoming Annual Conference, and other events and news items in the PNW:
In case this is your first time encountering the Annual Conference, ¶ 601 of The United Methodist Book of Discipline defines "the purpose of the annual conference is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by equipping its local churches for ministry and by providing a connection for ministry beyond the local church; all to the glory of God."
While much of our connectional work happens throughout the course of the calendar year, this important meeting in the life of the PNWAC helps us to remember where we've been, reorient ourselves to each other, and set a course moving into the future together; all to the glory of God!
