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 AC2024@twkumc.org!


Please Complete The Acts Bible Study before Annual Conference
Available in English and Spanish!
"Acts Continues: The Boundless Work of the Spirit," is a seven-week Bible Study and Sermon Series that the bishop encourages everyone to study in preparation for the TWK Annual Conference. It was produced by The Vine UMC and written in collaboration with TWK clergy. You can access a free version through The Vine UMC's website; you may also purchase a copy via Amazon in print ($15) or through Kindle ($9). Click below to learn more and access the study for your class or small group. The Vine also will offer a virtual study group opportunity. If you are in Nashville, an in-person group will be offered at Scarritt-Bennett.
