What Will Happen With The United Methodist Church?
The May General Conference will consider denominational-changing proposals. Once-every-four-years debates have occurred for 50+ years over acceptance and leadership of LGBTQ persons. The growth of our church as an international body have made reaching a widely accepted resolution of differences challenging. A post-worship presentation on Sunday, March 15 will help explain what is proposed, the likelihood of adoption and the potential impact on local congregations. Overview and analysis by Steve Zekoff, a veteran of seven General Conferences since 1996. Steve was a staff member at four General Conferences and a clergy delegate to the last three, serving as Wisconsin Delegation chair for the Portland and St. Louis sessions.
