2023 Charge Conference

Charge conference reports are due two weeks prior to your church’s scheduled Charge Conference. Although you will be familiar with the forms, the TWK Conference has a new way of accessing and submitting them (see link below for a pdf of the instructions).

Please note that there is not a local church leadership form. Instructions can be found on page 4 (see link below).

If you need help downloading and uploading the forms, please contact District Administrative Assistant Penny Story at purchasedistrict@twkumc.org or 270-527-8282.

District eNews

Most weeks we publish the Purchase District eNews (electronic newsletter) via e-mail with all sorts of information about programming, ministries, events, and much more. Our eNews service allows us to share with you what is going on within the Purchase District of the Tennessee-Western Kentucky Conference of The United Methodist Church. You’ll find many useful resources in each eNews to help with publicity of local, district and conference events by way of downloadable flyers, bulletin inserts and even PowerPoint slides.
