Second Tri-Conference Annual Meeting
June 15 - 16, 2018
Mass Mutual Center, Springfield, MA


“Hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.” 
~ Romans 5:5.

These are indeed times filled with hope as we – the Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island Conferences – consider voting to form a new, united conference with the hope of making our region a more just, loving, and compassionate place.

Why, you ask?

Our united covenant: Living the Love and Justice of Jesus.
We declare these values essential to our shared ministry together:
  • We understand the local church exists to make disciples of Jesus
  • We strive and commit to making God’s love and justice real
  • We believe God is calling us to bring new life as agents of change
  • We encourage the solidifying of current covenantal partnerships and the creation of new ones

Didn’t we already do this?

Last year’s historic first-ever joint meeting of our three conferences got the ball rolling when each conference voted in favor of pursuing the idea of joining together. Conference leaders have been working on the details ever since, and now it’s time to get down to the nitty gritty.

At this meeting, delegates of the three conferences will be asked to officially create the new conference by approving a covenant agreement, set of new bylaws, establishing a unified Board of Directors, electing officers, and making minor changes to their existing bylaws. They will meet separately but simultaneously to conduct this and other business.  (Documents to be voted can be found here.)

Online registration is now closed.  Walk-in registrations will be accepted, but walk-ins may not be able to attend a luncheon.
