The Florida Annual Conference will convene June 14 – 16 at the Lakeland Center. The FLUME steering committee has planned to have, during this time, the first gathering for Florida evangelicals so that we can get to know each other and share ideas for supporting and promoting unity in the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church, and ultimately the church worldwide.
It is our desire that as brothers and sisters in Christ, we get to know each other personally. We also wish to develop lasting friendships that will help us to go out and make Disciples of Christ that begin with loving our neighbors as ourselves. We have desire to relieve suffering and to share what Jesus has done in our own lives. Our love for Jesus and His church according to His Holy Scriptures and our Wesleyan heritage are bringing us together.
With this motivation we hope you will join us for breakfast June 15th to hear Bill Bouknight’s encouragement and perhaps a challenge to stand firm in our beliefs that we are called to love and be obedient to God and love others into the Kingdom of God.
