"It was written by United Methodist Bishop Gerald H. Kennedy and reminds us that we should respond to God’s call regardless of the situation around us, regardless of the hour in which we live, for God has called us for this very hour. Listen to the words of the first verse:

“God of love and God of power, grant us in this burning hour grace to ask these gifts of thee, daring hearts and spirits free. God of love and God of power, thou hast called us for this hour.”
And grace is the theme I have chosen for my Presidential year, specifically, Grace without limits..."

Lay Leader

Hazel Loney was elected in 2019 to serve as Lay Leader of the Conference for the period 2020-22. 

Hazels theme for her time as Lay Leader is 'In Christ Alone' . 

“It is not so much the case that God has a mission for his church in the world, as that God has a church for his mission in the world. Mission was not made for the church; the church was made for mission -God`s mission. This is why I take this great commission so seriously and why my strap line or theme for the next two years is`In Christ Alone`. He stands at the centre of God`s purposes for the whole creation and through the church, which is his body, he still lives and moves amongst men."
