On February 23, elected United Methodist delegates along with our bishops will gather in St. Louis, Missouri, for a called special session of General Conference. The goal of the meeting is to find a way forward through our disagreements about same-sex marriage and ordination of LGBTQ clergy.
Our congregation has participated in a Point of View (POV) conversation and discussed the options that will be presented to delegates at General Conference. Visit our Way Forward page for resources to help you understand the work of the Commission on a Way Forward.

Please join us in prayer for the delegates, all those gathering in St. Louis, and those gathering in United Methodist churches, that God’s Holy Spirit may lead our conversations.
