2022 North Central Jurisdiction CAH Convocation

July 11 - July 14, 2022
Norway, Michigan

The Michigan Conference Commission on Archives & History of The United Methodist Church cordially invites you to attend the 2022 North Central Jurisdiction Commission on Archives & History Convocation on July 11-14, 2022 in the Iron Mountain area. The theme will be "Ethnic Influences on The UMC in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula." This gathering has been postponed since July 2020 due to COVID precautions, but it looks like such restrictions and concerns are becoming small enough for us to plan to meet in person. We are also offering a Zoom component, at least for our business meeting sessions, if you would like to attend in that way. Please reach out to Rev. Melanie Young, 2022 Convocation Coordinator, Michigan Commission on Archives and History, at 517-227-4199 or for more information and registration materials.

The South Georgia Conference Archives and History Committee will host the Southeastern Jurisdiction Historical Society and the Historical Society of The United Methodist Church during their annual meetings in 2022.

An after-dinner lecture entitled John Wesley’s Time in Georgia given by Rev. Dave Hanson and followed by an ice cream social will round out our first evening. Wednesday will start early with chartered buses taking participants to Cockspur Island to see the Wesley Memorial marking the spot John and Charles landed in the colony to begin their ministry. This will be followed by a tour of historic Savannah and a delicious lunch in the area. After returning to St. Simons Island and dinner, there will be a tour of the Moore Methodist Museum and a showing of St. Simons Island 360, a 180-minute video detailing the history of the island. Thursday morning will bring a half-day tour of St. Simons Island beginning in the village and pier area and traveling north to see where the Wesley brothers ministered to the colonists at Fort Frederica. This will include a tour of the historic Christ Episcopal Church and grounds. A banquet at Epworth by The Sea Conference Center celebrating the recipients of the Saddlebag Award and Ministry of Memory Award will be held Thursday night. A memorial service honoring those we have lost will be held Friday morning before participants depart. Participants can be members of these historical societies, lifelong Methodists, or anyone who is interested in John and Charles Wesley’s time in the Georgia colony.
