BRENTWOOD — The annual gathering of Middle Tennessee Methodists takes on a special meaning this year as the conference celebrates 200 years of Methodism.
“It’s a very, very special time for us,” says Betty Lewis, director of connectional ministries for the Tennessee United Methodist Conference, which includes about 475 churches.
The event will be Sunday through Wednesday at Brentwood United Methodist Church, 309 Franklin Road.
Historical characters, played by some familiar faces in the laity, will be on hand for the four-day conference to help bring the church’s rich history to life.
“It is an opportunity to witness how Tennessee Methodism can come alive through the characters,” says Lewis. | read the FULL STORY (www.tennessean.com)
