Registration now through August 31, 2020.
As mentioned earlier this year, we continue to be thankful for the Spending Plan of the Susquehanna Conference that has for many years subsidized the cost of attendance at Annual Conference. You can imagine the expense of an undertaking of this magnitude is significant and continues to grow each year. Beginning this year there will be a $25 Administrative fee assessed to all attendees. This fee will allow for partial coverage of conducting the work and worship of our Annual Conference meeting. Please know that the Sessions Committee is diligently investigating changes in how we meet to contain costs in the future.
Secure online payment may be made using a credit card or bank transfer by following the easy directions during registration. Payment may also be made by sending a check payable to “Susquehanna Conference UMC” to the attention of AC Registrar. Payment deadline is October 1, 2020.
NOTE: Your registration will not be completed until payment has been received in full.
All registered members will receive an email closer to October 3 with their login information for the online sessions.
Questions should be directed to: Sarah Filizzi, Annual Conference Registrar, registrar@susumc.
The 11th Session of the Susquehanna Annual Conference has been rescheduled for October 3, 2020, as a virtual meeting, we will not be meeting in person.
The theme for 2020 is: Better Together ... One in Ministry to All the World

Annual Conference Rescheduled
Dear Lay and Clergy Members of Susquehanna Conference,
Grace to you in the name of Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace, Healer of our Brokenness, and Hope of the World!
It breaks our hearts to hear that COVID-19 is still spreading and surging in our country and the world. Coronavirus-related situations are continually evolving. Plans we put in place a week or even a few days ago have had to change. As we prepare for the future, the best we can say is, “For now, this is our plan.” Knowing that conditions may change, we must stay nimble and be willing to quickly alter and adjust well-laid plans.
We’ve had to make some changes to our plans for the 2020 Annual Conference. Here are our plans for conference session, the clergy session, and additional celebrations:
ANNUAL CONFERENCE, Saturday, October 3, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
We will be connected to hold the 11th Session of the Susquehanna Annual Conference with the theme “Better Together: One in Ministry to All the World.” Let’s remember that, under these unprecedented circumstances, we are still called to be a church alive in the mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Our commitment to ministries of healing, justice, and peace for all grows stronger for such a time as this.
This session will be held virtually (online). We will not meet in person.
Save these additional Dates:
CLERGY EXECUTIVE SESSION, Tuesday, September 22, 9 am - This will also be a virtual meeting.
RETIREMENT RECOGNITION & MEMORIAL SERVICES, Saturday, October 31 (Please note that there is a possibility that these events will be held virtually.)
ORDINATION SERVICE, Saturday, November 7, 10 am to Noon
Annual Conference District Care Kit Challenge
As United Methodist Christians, we have a long history of putting hands and feet to the prayers that we lift. Built into our DNA as a faith tradition are two incredibly important truths: 1) Our faith is never separated from our actions. What we believe about Jesus is lived out in the ways that we seek to make a difference in the world. 2) We believe that we are able to do more together than the sum of our individual contributions. When it comes to the Body of Christ working together – being one with each other and one in ministry to the world, 1 plus 1 always equals more than two.
In order to experience that, the Susquehanna Conference (that’s all of us, friends) is being issued an invitation, or a challenge. Between now and the 2020 session of Annual Conference, to be held at Hershey Lodge next May 28-30, churches in all seven districts are each being asked to collect one item which is used to make up Mission Central Care Kits. Churches are then asked to send those items with their pastor and/or lay member to Annual Conference. During Annual Conference, participants will have the opportunity to work together to tangibly live out our call to work for the transformation of the world by assembling those care kits – which will then be distributed through our partners at Mission Central and UMCOR.
- Altoona District is asked to collect new, adult size washcloths.
- Harrisburg District is asked to collect ¾” to 1” adhesive bandages, banded together in groups of 6.
- Lewisburg District is asked to collect hand towels, good quality, preferably 15X25 – 17X27 inches in size.
- Scranton/Wilkes-Barre District is asked to collect new toothbrushes, which should be left in original, individual packaging.
- State College District is asked to collect new combs, preferably those which are sturdy and have 6 inches of teeth.
- Williamsport District is asked to collect bath size soap bars, 3 ounces or larger in original packaging. No Ivory or Jergen’s soap, please.
- York District is asked to collect toenail or fingernail clippers.
There are over 800 churches in the Susquehanna Annual Conference, and we would love to assemble at least one care kit for each church to reflect the power we have when we come together. To reach this goal, each district is challenged to collect 1,000 of its designated items and see what God can do when we act as one with each other in ministry to the world.
