Speakers, preachers, and teachers all hit “grand slams” Tuesday at the 2008 session of the Holston Annual Conference. They drove home the “offer them Christ” theme, while providing tools to help churches actually live out the theme.
The Rev. Randy Frye received one of a few standing ovations, after speaking on how members should “work together in the United Methodist way.”
“The call before us is to offer them Christ,” Frye said to applause. “That is the main thing. That is the only thing.”
On the final day, Wednesday, June 11, members were scheduled to vote on the 2009 budget and take an offering for a conference mission in Sudan.
The budget passed and the Awesome offering for Sudan was $170,000 Praises!
