The Vine is a new hybrid (online and in-person) community of faith of the Tennessee-Western Kentucky Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. This new community of faith will be distributed throughout the state of Tennessee, Western Kentucky, and beyond. The Vine is grounded in the words of Jesus found in John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, then you will produce much fruit. Without me, you can’t do anything.” (CEB) In these times of social polarization, misinformation, and division we choose to commit to way of living grounded, not in what sets us apart one from the other, but in that which can unite our hearts and minds—Jesus Christ, the True Vine.
We invite you to support this journey with your offering gifts during the annual conference opening worship on June 19.
The offering during the Service of Licensing, Commissioning and Ordination on Tuesday, June 20, supports the Jerusalem Fund, which is an emergency fund to assist conference families with unexpected needs.
