Registration Cost is $90 which includes lunch at the Pirate’s House in Savannah, charter bus excursions to Cockspur Island, Savannah, and St. Simons Island, and the banquet dinner at Epworth By the Sea Conference Center.  Online registration will be open on February 1 and can be found at www.mooremethodistmuseum.com or at umchistory.org.  The deadline to register is July 15 and reservations after this date will only be refunded as a result of a weather emergency.  Space is limited to 75 participants and so please register early.

Hotel accommodations can be found online for St. Simons Island hotels and at the Epworth By the Sea Conference Center (912)638-8688.  Our personal reservationist is Trice Roberts and there are many different price points offered at Epworth By the Sea with all meals included in your hotel rates.  All programs will be held at Epworth By the Sea and all excursions will depart from and return to Epworth By the Sea.  Anyone with physical disabilities should consult with Anne Packard, director of the Moore Methodist Museum, to arrange accommodations.       
In the midst of anxiety and turmoil, the Moore Methodist Museum feels it is an important time to remember who we are and where we come from and hopes that the event Walking in the Footsteps of Wesley will help us to achieve both of these things.  Any questions or concerns can be directed to Anne Packard at director@mooremuseum.org or 912-638-4050.
