Collections at the 2023 Upper New York Annual Conference
At this year’s Upper New York (UNY) Annual Conference, held June 1-3, at Onondaga Community College’s SRC Arena in Syracuse, there will be three opportunities to give.
During Opening Worship on June 1 at 10:30 a.m., there will be a collection for the UNY Mission Central HUB. The HUB is located at the United Methodist Center in Liverpool. It is a place for local churches to actively engage in outreach and disaster response ministries. From training the Conference’s Volunteer in Mission and Disaster Response teams to collecting and assembling flood buckets, hygiene kits, menstrual hygiene kits, and more, the UNY Mission Central HUB is the perfect answer to local churches who feel called to expand their outreach ministries. The ministry of the HUB is supported solely by financial and product donations. Click here to learn more about the UNY Mission Central HUB.
