FALL HUB EVENTS-CONNECT, ENCOURAGE &THRIVE: The dates are set and details will be sent out to your pastor, PPR or SPRC Chair and Mission or Outreach Chair. Church Conferences will again be individually led by Elders from our District followed by LUNCH. After lunch, every church will be invited to share a few minutes about a great outreach/evangelism/mission project that your church is engaged. Everyone will vote for their favorite ministry and your HUB'S offering will go to support the ministry that receives the most votes!
