Upcoming 2023 Annual Conference Offering

The Central Texas Conference offering this year will go to support the work of starting new United Methodist Churches and faith communities in our area. We are already experiencing the movement of God in this exciting time with the launching of new churches (there's a new fellowship near us in Azle!) and Oasis Fellowships (home churches in underserved areas due to disaffiliations). Your support will help with tools and resources that will enable more people to be reached with the good news of Christ's love. Please mark Venmo payments, check memos, and offering envelopes with: "Conference offering."
