UMC postpones General Conference due to coronavirus
The United Methodist Church's General Conference, scheduled to be held May 5-15 in Minneapolis, has been postponed due to the coronavirus.
The announcement was made after the Minneapolis Convention Center, which was to host the denominational meeting, notified the denomination's executive committee that, at the direction of city and state officials, it is postponing or canceling all events that attract more than 50 people through May 10.
