Liberia Conference Bishop to Visit GR: Sept. 26

All are invited to attend this special visit with The Rev. Dr. Samuel J. Quire, Jr Bishop of the Liberia Conference on Tuesday, September 26 from 6:30-8pm at Northlawn UMC (1157 Northlawn NE, Grand Rapids, 49505). Bishop Quire was elected to the episcopacy in December 2016. He has served as Administrative Assistant to both Bishop John Innis and interim Bishop Arthur Kulah, and was the first Director of the Bishop Judith Craig Children’s Village. Bishop Quire will talk about his priorities for Liberia, with a question and answer session to follow.

Bishop Quire will speak about his priority areas for the Liberia episcopacy for the current quadrennial, 2017 – 2020. The plan was developed by a strategic planning committee after these questions were asked at the 184th Session of the Liberia Annual Conference:

  • Where are we as a Church?
  • Where do we want to go as a Church?
  • How do we get there as a Church?

The Detroit Conference has been in a covenant relationship since 1997 with the Liberia Conference, and this covenant will continue in the new Michigan Conference. Questions? Please contact the GR District Office grdistrict@wmcumc.org or 616.459.4503 x-1211.
