The third Tennessee-Western Kentucky Annual Conference will be held on June 17-19, 2024, at Murfreesboro First UMC. The theme for this year's conference is "BOUNDLESS: Acts Continues" celebrating the boundless work of the Holy Spirit. Our key biblical text is the Acts of the Apostles; we will spend intentional time together--both before and during the conference--studying Acts and experiencing what it means to be a people of faith empowered by the Holy Spirit. Desired outcomes for the 2024 TWKUMC Annual Conference.

Online access will be available for those voting members who are unable to attend in person. There also will be a public livestream for congregation members to watch. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email us at!

If you need to brush up on how to use the online voting system, please watch the tutorial on the GNTV Virtual Event Help webpage

If you are a voting member waiting to receive email messages from us with information about the annual conference, please let your district office know so they can help us update your email address. Here is what you may have missed.
