SEE BELOW FOR AN UPDATE ABOUT THE DISCERNMENT TEAM’S PROPOSAL.
The Administrative Board met last night, December 4th. The budget for 2023 presented by the Finance Committee was approved. The motion to begin the process for a possible disaffiliation from The United Methodist Church was approved by a 34 to 10 vote. See below to read the full report from the Discernment Committee as well as the official results from the church survey by “Election Buddy.”
The next steps include notifying our District Superintendent in writing. The District and Conference will begin requesting paperwork, such as financials, copies of deeds, membership roles, etc. Once the paperwork is processed, a date will be set for an in-person, church conference vote. This process must be complete between now and 120 days. Additional information will be posted as the staff and church leadership work with the conference on each of the necessary next steps.
Please keep the entire congregation and each other in your prayers this Advent season.
