We will be holding this year’s Church Conference on October 29 at 7:00 p.m. at Baldwin Memorial UMC (921 Generals Hwy, Millersville, MD 21108). All members of the church are able to vote and are encouraged to attend.
“The charge conference is the basic governing body of each United Methodist local church and is composed of all members of the church council. All members of the charge conference must be members of the local church. The charge conference must meet at least once per year. The charge conference directs the work of the church and gives general oversight to the church council, reviews and evaluates the mission and ministry of the church, sets salaries for the pastor and staff, elects the members of the church council, and recommends candidates for ordained ministry.” (Source: A Dictionary for United Methodists, Alan K.
