Circuit Forums to elect Circuit Visitors and conduct other official business will be scheduled before January 31, 2018. Please check with your Circuit Visitor if you have questions regarding the Circuit Forum.

Overtures may be submitted only by a member congregation, the Board of Directors, an official district conference of ordained/commissioned ministers, or a forum of a circuit. Overtures must be submitted using the overture template included in the congregation mailing or also available on the Michigan District website. The deadline to submit overtures is February 24, 2018. No overture received subsequent to that date shall be accepted for convention consideration unless a committee consisting of the District President, the First Vice President and the District Secretary adjudge it to be a matter of overriding importance and urgency which is not adequately covered by documents already before the convention.
