Southeastern Yearly Meeting held our first in-person Annual Gathering since 2019, returning to the United Methodist Conference Center in Fruitland Park, Florida over Easter Week, April 13 – 17. It was just amazing to be together again! Attendance was over half of our usual pre-pandemic numbers, with 65 adults and 12 youth enjoying worship, workshops, worship sharing, plenary sessions, Intergenerational Community Night and the Walton Retreats and Lecture. This was also our first hybrid Yearly Meeting; about 34 Friends were able to join us online for plenary sessions and the Walton Lecture, thanks to the heroic efforts of our audio-visual tech team: Carl Hersh, Dan Vaughen, and Wayne Finnegar.
Below is our Photo Gallery. Many thanks to our photographers: Eduardo Diaz, Gary Evans, Kody Hersh, Mira Tanna, Rosalind Kirupavathy, Brian Olson, Liz Jenkins, and Bill and Vicki Carlie.
