Act of Repentance Service

Friday Afternoon

The Reverend Glen Chebon Kernell, Jr. will lead an afternoon service of recognition and repentance that helps the 2016 Annual Conference take the “first steps” on a journey to heal our damaged historical relationship with indigenous people while building a deeper understanding and a shared future.

We will celebrate Native American faith and ministry while committing ourselves to a new path together.
