Information ON What is Happening in the Global UMC
Please keep the United Methodist Church in your prayers as we draw close to the General Conference 2019 Special Session. The Special Session will be held February 23-26, 2019 in St. Louis, Missouri. The purpose will be to receive and act on a report from the Commission on a Way Forward based on the recommendations of the Council of Bishops. The 32-member Commission was authorized by General Conference 2016 and appointed by the Council of Bishops to examine paragraphs in The Book of Discipline concerning human sexuality and exploring options to strengthen the unity of the church.
There are many places to go to look for information on what is happening as well as videos and other resources on the details of each plan. All of this info is listed below. Also feel free to email Pastor Dennis at email@example.com for a personal conversation or to have someone join your small group to provide info and answer questions.
