All Church Meeting
Sunday, October 6, 12:00 noon
Please plan to join us Sunday, Oct. 6, at noon, for some important updates and a brief discussion that will inform decisions about how we move forward as a church in the year ahead. Lunch will be provided (gluten-free and vegetarian options available).
The people of University United Methodist Church, as well as a majority of United Methodist Church members across the United States, have rejected the traditional plan voted on by the 2019 General Conference, which is in direct conflict with our commitment to inclusion.
We met several times over the summer to gather and discuss information related to alternative plans and actions. In addition, we met last week with District Superintendent Jerry Devine to gain a better understanding of the complex and rapidly shifting landscape.
At the October 6 meeting, following the 11 a.m. worship service, we will share with you facts and insights, answer questions, and discuss how we will move forward together.
We look forward to seeing you and hearing from you, and we ask you to join us in praying for wisdom and discernment.
At University United Methodist Church, we affirm that as disciples of Jesus Christ, we are an open and inclusive congregation and welcome all persons into full participation regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic situation, age, ability, education, background and whether single or partnered.
