Conference-wide Study Announced

Beloved in Christ Jesus:

I am inviting us to come together as The West Ohio Conference in the study of Galatians: Gospel of Grace over the weeks of the Easter season. While we are not united in our thinking on all matters, we can all be united in our commitment to turn to the scripture for guidance. As we read, study, and discuss scripture together, we trust the Holy Spirit to move in our midst and to speak to us through the living word of God. I hope you will join churches across the annual conference in a conference-wide all-church series on Galatians. Small group discussion guides, worship resources, social media options, and communication templates will be available to you for this series by early April. Should your church already have plans for this season, I encourage you to use these materials  sometime this year. As you make plans to participate, you are encouraged to read Galatians and begin preparing around these weekly themes:

  • April 22nd-28th: Grace that Transforms - Chapter 1 with key verse Galatians 1:23
  • April 29th-May 5th: Grace that Embraces - Chapter 2 with key verses Galatians 2:9-10
  • May 6th-May 12th: Grace that Clothes Us - Chapter 3 with key verses Galatians 3:26-28
  • May 13th-May 19th: Grace that Forms - Chapter 4 with key verse Galatians 4:19
  • May 20th-26th: Grace that Bears Fruit - Chapter 5 with key verse Galatians 5:22
  • May 27th-June 2nd: Grace that Sustains - Chapter 6 with key verse Galatians 6:9

Your servant in Christ Jesus,

+Bishop Gregory V. Palmer
