South Georgia Regional CME Conference comes to town

June 27, 2005

Albany-- More than 400 leaders of the Christian Methodist Episcopal churches of South Georgia will be spending the week in Albany.

The 126th South Georgia Regional Conference of the CME Church is underway. Delegates, pastors and members from all over South Georgia will use the conference to report what's been done in the church over the past year and discuss the issues affecting the church.

Leaders say anything affecting the nation affects the church.

"We are particularly concerned about some of the health issues and how they impact African-Americans. We're particularly concerned about the problems with education," says presiding prelate Bishop Othal Lakey.

Church leaders are also concerned about the impact that the war on Iraq is having on the economy. The conference will last until Friday.
