There’s been a lot of chatter and upset in our denomination since our national UMC 2019 General Conference made its decision regarding human sexuality in February. You can log onto this address for a summary of the decision:
What does it all mean for First Church?
Let’s have a family meeting to talk about it in Thompson Hall at 6:45pm on October 10, 2019. In this sharing time, the reasonable views you bring will be welcomes, honored, and respected. Thompson Hall will be a safe place for everyone.
…eventually, we will have to decide where we stand as a local church, but on October 10th, we will be sharing our thoughts, opinions, hopes, joys — and even our fears.
There are two requirements to attend:
- Be ready to respect all reasonable views and to respect all the people who share their views.
- Listen to the messages Pastor Ed will preach on September 29th and October 6th (either in person or online).
If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Ed Davis at [email protected] or the church office at 732-349-8155.
