The 2017 Charge Conference for Church of the Palms has been set by Rev. Thomas Pearson, Superintendent of the Walterboro District, as Thursday, September 21, at 7 p.m.
Rev. Pearson will preside at this conference.
The charge conference is the basic unit in the connectional system that meets annually and serves as the connecting link between the local church and the general Church. The Church of the Palms is a station church on the Church of the Palms charge, meaning it is the only church on the charge.
According to our Book of Discipline ¶246.3, The primary responsibilities of the charge conference in the annual meeting shall be to review and evaluate the total mission and ministry of the church, receive reports and adopt objectives and goals recommended by the Church Council that are in keeping with the objectives of The United Methodist Church.
