A WAY FORWARD

Sunday, January 20th, 6:30pm Fellowship Hall
A Way Forward: Awareness and Education on the UMC Special General Conference. For decades, our denomination, like many others, has struggled with issues related to sexual orientation and lifestyle. In recent years, the divergence of positions related to these matters has threatened to split the church. In response, a special General Conference of the UMC has been called for February 23-26 in St. Louis to propose A Way Forward. On the 28th we will learn about the issues and proposals coming from the leadership of the church and how these may impact local congregations. For more information contact Pastors Larry or Katya.
