Bishop Stanovsky announces new dates for online Annual conferences
Feb. 25, 2021

Bishop Elaine JW Stanovsky asks today that clergy and lay members of the Alaska, Oregon-Idaho and Pacific Northwest Conferences hold the dates of June 20-24, 2021 open for online Annual Conference sessions.
The three conferences will gather for opening and closing worship experiences, but they will meet separately to conduct the respective business of each conference. This is a change from the previously announced dates of June 9-12, 2021.
The new dates were set in response to unfolding plans at the global and jurisdictional levels, amid a global pandemic.

While Bishop Stanovsky has set the dates for online annual conferences, the timing of each conference's session during the week is still being discussed. Members can expect to see sessions extend beyond the essentials-only structure held last fall, but there will still be limitations on how robust each session can be, given the constraints of online conferences.
Registration information, a more thorough schedule of sessions (including plans for clergy and laity sessions ahead of June 20), deadlines and procedures for submitting legislation and reports in each conference will be announced in early March.

* To read the details about the cancelation of the one day general conference, see this From the March 22nd UMNS Daily Digest: Bishops cancel May 8 General Conference

Oregon-Idaho Reconciling United Methodists May 8th

Our program will be "Rooted and Rising", led by our Western and North Central Jurisdiction Organizer Izzy Alvaran from the Reconciling Ministries Network. We will discuss how we, as RUMS, can strengthen our commitment and refocus on our grassroots work towards justice and equality for our LGBTQI+ friends and families.

We hope you will join us.

Action Request - Single-user, gender-neutral, accessible, lockable-restrooms

On June 12, 2015, the Oregon-Idaho Annual Conference approved our Action Request "Single-user, gender-neutral, accessible, lockable rest rooms" with one amendment (from "require" to "recommend"). Providing information about this need will allow caring congregations to implement the action as soon as they are able.
