What is a Church Conference? Each fall The Northern Illinois Conference of the United Methodist Church holds a holy conferencing session with each church in the Northern Illinois Conference. These sessions include a time of worship, celebration, and business. The District Superintendent or a person sent in representation of the DS leads the Conference and the worship portion. The ministries and missions of the church are celebrated. Lay leadership is elected for the following year.
Recent years’ Church Conference booklets which summarize the various ministries and missions of First UMC of DeKalb can be found on this page.
