Denominational News

 

In the opening days of 2020, The United Methodist Church made national news.  Conservative and progressive Methodist leaders from around the world released a press release about their proposed legislation for an amicable schism.  If passed at General Conference 2020, the “Protocol for Reconciliation & Grace Through Separation” opens the door for conservative and progressive United Methodists to part ways and form a new expression of Methodism. 

 

Couple of things to keep in mind.  While the proposal made headlines in January, nothing was official.  Nothing has changed.  Truth is – the only body that can make this decision is General Conference, which meets next in Minneapolis, MN, on May 5-15, 2020.  So, let’s continue to lift up our denomination and the delegates for General Conference in prayer.  As a church family, we’ll have opportunities to gather for discussion and sharing in the coming weeks & months.  Stay tuned.
