Because of ongoing concerns with the widespread flooding in Nebraska, the planned post-General Conference regional gatherings scheduled for Saturday, March 23, in Columbus and Sunday, March 24, in Omaha have been postponed.
Instead, please seek out ways to help neighbors coping with this devastating flooding event. The conference will provide more details about how volunteers can help by working in flooded areas once those areas are deemed safe enough for such activities by authorities. We’ll post those opportunities on our Facebook page and on the conference website.

March 24, 2-4 p.m. at Omaha St. Andrew’s UMC when Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr. will present information from the recent Special General Conference.
“Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr. invites United Methodists in Kansas and Nebraska to a series of regional gatherings to discuss together the connectional nature of The United Methodist Church and how the people of the Great Plains Conference can serve Christ together following the recent special session of General Conference.”
These gatherings will provide a time for the singing of hymns, reflecting on scripture, and communion. Following a brief presentation by the bishop on what transpired at General Conference, attendees will take part in small-group community building conversations that focus on our possibilities for the future of our mission in the Great Plains Conference.
These gatherings are related to the special session of General Conference, but there will not be a time to make speeches or to seek to sway others to any particular position regarding human sexuality.
March 24, 2-4 p.m. at Omaha St. Andrew’s UMC (Located at 15050 W. Maple Rd, Omaha, NE)
