Event Details

The theme of our 2017 South Georgia Annual Conference session is "Alive Together in Christ." We are excited about welcoming everyone to our new venue: the Jekyll Island Convention Center on Jekyll Island. We are also looking forward to being led by our new episcopal leader, Bishop R. Lawson Bryan. Since Bishop Bryan arrived in our conference, he has been rallying us around the vision of God making us alive together in Christ, based on Ephesians 2:5. Throughout our annual conference session, Bishop Bryan will be challenging us to identify and celebrate together what makes us alive in Christ so that we will long even more for those experiences in our life together as an annual conference and in our local churches. 

Bishop Bryan has invited Bishop James Swanson to be the preacher for our Opening Worship Service on Sunday evening, Bishop Michael Watson to be our Memorial Service preacher, and the Rev. Lovett Weems to be our teacher for conference. Bishop Bryan will preach our Ordination and Commissioning Service on Monday evening of conference.

On Tuesday afternoon of annual conference, we will break a little early at 4:30 p.m. so that we can enjoy a beach party with one another and with our families. Also, there will be a “summer camp” for the elementary-age children of conference delegate families led by our conference's Camp Connect summer camp leadership.
