Annual Charge Conference – Thursday, December 6, at 6:30PM. Once a year, our church officers, members, and guests gather to vote on official administrative items central to every United Methodist Church. (Only official members @UMCMerced may vote.) At the meeting, we ratify the Board of Trustees, elect leadership officers, approve the pastor’s compensation, and recommend lay servants. This meeting demonstrates our shared connection to the administrative ministries of our United Methodist Annual Conference and the global UMC. Everyone is invited to attend.
