On January 31, 2019, at 7:00pm, our church will hold an open discussion time on A Way Forward. The term, A Way Forward, refers to the United Methodist General Conference Commission that was formed to do a complete examination and possible revision of the Book of Discipline concerning human sexuality and church policies. More information will be given about this in the Newsletter.
Pastor Dale has arranged for Rev. Seth McPherson to come help him in presenting the situation. Seth is one of the Alternate Delegates to Special General Conference session.
The idea for the evening will be a short presentation about the three plans the Special General Conference will be considering. There will be some explanation about our understanding of what these might mean as to the future of the denomination. Then a good portion of the evening will be devoted to a question and answer time. Some of the discussion might be considering what any of the plans would mean for our church; but please note that until the General Conference meets and makes decisions at the February General Conference, much of the matter is still speculation.
