Register for Saturday Banquet Dinner and celebrate 50 Years Together!

Join us as we mark  “50 Years Together” at our Annual Conference banquet this year.
The Commission on Archives and History will lead us as we take a look back at the 50th anniversary of the union of The Methodist Church and The Evangelical United Brethren Church to form The United Methodist Church at the historic Uniting Conference in Dallas, Texas in 1968.  Celebrate our union, and hear from those present at the time, and at the Wisconsin Uniting Conference in 1969. 
Plan now to attend this historic celebration!

Come and celebrate! Please register for the Banquet dinner Saturday, during your online conference registration.

Unleashing Revitalization and Hope for Your Church

Sunday evening 7:30 pm - 9 pm special workshop.

 Rev. Sue Nilson Kibbey


There’s good news for any congregation that finds itself looking down and in with discouragement, and longs to shift to an upward and outward focus of new possibilities. Join Rev. Sue Nilson Kibbey, director of the Missional Church Consultation Initiative (MCCI), for new insights and best practices that can set the stage in any church or setting for forward movement. Hear stories, gain ideas and learn more about the MCCI, a revitalization resourcing initiative set to launch in the Wisconsin Conference this year.

Monday, June 18:

Learning Day Workshops
  • The goal of Learning Day is to provide clergy and laity with resources they can take back and use in their local congregations.
  • Registration is FREE and attendance is not limited to Annual Conference attendees--all are welcome! Register ahead of time so room size can be arranged.
  • More information on speakers and workshop topics are available on the Learning Day tab.

Please check the Agenda tab for times and locations. We hope to see you this year at WI Annual Conference to learn and celebrate!
