Sunday Wrap Up:

Annual Conference’s opening worship kicked off Sunday night, June 5, with a welcome and prayer by the Rev. Thomas Smith, pastor of First United Methodist Church, Isle of Palms, followed by a powerful solo by Vanessa Murray and the Mount Zion United Methodist Church Choir, Hartsville, “The Lord is My Shepherd.” Then Bishop Jonathan Holston brought a sermon on "Just One More Thing," drawing from Romans 8:31-39.

“We are seeking a more excellent way,” Holston told the thousands gathered in the Florence Civic Center. “God has blessed us, and we are recipients of His grace and His mercy. Even tonight, after we have come through another year of work together, the Lord is asking us for one more thing.” Read more here
