Dear York River District!
This year, the York River District will be hosting the Annual Conference in Hampton. As hosts, we need to show our usual hospitality and generosity of time.
Time is of the essence for us. Until now, we do not have the level of support of volunteers. Hosting the Annual Conference is a huge responsibility that requires a large number of volunteers, and that is where I am turning to you for your support.
As your District Superintendent, I am now asking for volunteers to help us as a district.
We have put together a Sign-up Genius to help facilitate the process. The Sign-up Genius will also help volunteers see where to share their gifts.
Thanks for your support of our shared ministry. Let us make the York River a proud place to be.
Blessings to you!
Rev. Charles F. Ledlum-Bates, PhD
