District Conference, which takes place this year on August 14-16th at Camp Brethren Heights-Rodney, MI (www.campbrethrenheightsmi.org), is much like a family reunion for people who are a part of the Church of the Brethren in Michigan. We eat meals together, sing songs together, spend time in nature together, worship together and, for those who are sent as delegates, make decisions together-which affect the present and future work of the Church of the Brethren in Michigan.
For most, District Conference is the one time of the year that they get a chance to see so many people they care about, from all different churches across the state, in one place. For those who have never attended a District Conference before, this is a great place to meet a lot of new people and get to know more about what the Church of the Brethren is all about. A large spectrum of ages and backgrounds are represented at this event, a variety of activities are available to participate in, and the camp venue provides a stunning environment in which to enjoy yourself as you spend a weekend with other brothers and sisters in Christ.
We hope that you will consider attending the Michigan District Church of the Brethren District Conference this year. You can find out more information about the event at www.michigancob.org/dc/
