Beloved Community of the Mountain Sky Conference:
The 2020 Annual Conference Session was significant in several ways:
It was the first-ever digital annual conference session!
It was efficient and cost-effective (with an averaging savings of $600 to $800 per person).
Most importantly, it was affirmed that the MSC desires to create Beloved Community through a commitment to racial justice and anti-racism ministries.
Throughout the vast geography of the Mountain Sky Conference, laity and clergy logged in and connected through worship, learning, legislation, and commitment to the next year of ministry.

We want to hear from you! Please fill out the post-conference survey for the 2020 Annual Conference Session.
Again, your presence was the reason that the Conference was a great success! The theme of "Repairers of the Breach" guides our ministry going forward. How can new people hear this good news? How can you participate in repairing breaches in your church and community? The gospel message that calls us forth is deeply transformative and it asks that we immerse ourselves in a journey that is both personal and communal. Together, we can create Beloved Community!
