The Annual Conference was host to representatives of Congregational churches from all over the U.S. and England. Five new churches were welcomed into the fellowship. Attendees enjoyed opportunities to worship, learn about missions, meet new people, participate in workshops, and hear Bible lectures. Business sessions were interspersed throughout the four day conference. Visitors from other states were excited to learn about Omaha and about Nebraska. Chris and Linda were in charge of the welcome table. Maps and materials were gathered and displayed, with someone on hand to answer visitors' questions. In the photos below you'll see Chris at the welcome table, a few of the many banners brought from IA & NE churches to grace the ballroom where we worshiped, and a group of friends from IA churches whom we met for supper one evening.
