Recently, the West Ohio Conference Communications Department invited local churches to participate in a Photo Contest. Each photo represented the theme “We love Jesus and our United Methodist Church.” More than 180 photos were received. Although we can only offer awards to the top three photos, we will be using many of the photographs in a video that will be shown at the 2024 Annual Conference, on the conference website and our social media channels. Some of these photos will also be displayed at the conference office in Worthington.

It is time to reveal our top three winners:  1) Boy praying submitted by Trinity UMC, Ottawa; 2) Forgiven by Ginghamsburg UMC and 3) Youth Praying by Powell UMC.

Congratulations to all. Keep on making a difference in the lives of people in your church and community. And, don’t forget to take pictures.
