                                                                                he will not speak on his own but will speak whatever he hears, and he will

                                                                                declare to you the things that are to come.  14 He will glorify me

                                                                                because he will take what is mine and declare it to you.  15 All that the Father

                                                                                has is mine.  For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare

                                                                                to you.

NC Conference

Annual Conference is this coming week!  It is scheduled for June 15-18 at the Greenville Convention Center, Greenville, NC. This year's theme is "Graceful Justice - Rooted in Our Baptism.”   It will be so wonderful to have Annual Conference in person this year. Annual Conferences in 2020 and 2021 were virtual!


Participants in this year's Annual Conference are encouraged to bring canned goods for eastern NC Food Banks. As motivation, this year’s Annual Conference will feature “Canstruction”—four models of eastern NC structures made out of cans. This will be a very interesting sight! These cans will go to the Food Banks, too, after our Annual Conference. If you have cans you would like to send, please let Pastor Liz know by today.


As usual at Annual Conference, special offerings are received so that life-changing relief and mission work can continue. This year, special offerings for Ukraine Relief, Tornado Relief for Kentucky and Tennessee and the Gary Wayne Locklear Mission Endowment will be received. Contact Pastor Liz by today, if you would like to send a donation to the Conference to add to others' gifts and greatly bless those who need help. Checks can be made to ZUMC with the specific special offering written on the memo line. Thank you!

You are encouraged to give to the Lord's work through our church in the

following ways:

~by mailing your offering to ZUMC at 121 W. Gannon Ave., Zebulon, NC 27597.
