Men of the Northern Illinois Conference

I would like to invite you to the Northern Illinois Conference UMM Annual Meeting on February 10, 2018; hosted by the Dekalb District at the Sycamore UMC.  Breakfast will begin at 8:30 with the business meeting beginning at 9:00, then at 9:45 we will move into the sanctuary for our speaker followed by Bishop Sally Dyck officiating our communion.  We should be done by 11:00 am.  

Our speaker this year is Mark Dehority, deployed staff of the General Commission on United Methodist Men, introducing AMEND Together, the new 8-week small group men’s study to end violence against women and girls by engaging and educating men - http://www.gcumm.org/news/seventeen-churches-test-domestic-violence-curriculum .  The GCUMM has been working on this initiative for at least 2 years with the YMCA of Nashville & Middle Tennessee.  Shan Foster, ex-pro basketball player, talks about Amend on the following video - http://www.umc.org/how-we-serve/nba-star-asks-men-to-end-domestic-violence .

It is amazing that with the society issues that are now raging, a resource is available.
