The Bi-District Clergy (Alexandria and Arlington pastors) have four meetings each year. Two of these meetings take place in the fall and two take place in the spring. Clergy are expected to be meeting regularly in their clergy peer learning groups.
Our next Clergy Meeting is: Wednesday, April 19, 2017
This meeting will take place at St. Stephen’s UMC from 9:30-12:30.
St. Stephen’s United Methodist Church
9203 Braddock Rd., Burke, VA 22015
Bishop Lewis will be with us and will offer the program for this meeting!
At the conclusion of the 4/19 meeting, clergy peer learning groups will meet together for lunchtime discussion. Groups may meet at St. Stephen’s (we will provide a boxed lunch) or groups can meet over lunch elsewhere. ALL CLERGY should RSVP here so that we know who will be attending and whether or not you require a lunch.
