Prayerfully Discerning God’s Future

Information and Listening Sessions

Information Sessions

The purpose of these sessions is for the Discernment Team to share information with the congregation related to the current legal option to disaffiliate from the United Methodist Church before the end of 2022. The Discernment Team will present facts they have collected to this point. The team will present the same information in all three meetings in order for church members to have a variety of opportunities to attend when convenient. A recording will be made available for Sunday school classes, small groups, and those who are unable to attend.

Information Sessions will be held:

Sunday, August 28 at 6:00 pm in Tyson Hall

Wednesday, September 7 at 6:00 in Tyson Hall

Sunday, September 11 at 9:45 am in Tyson Hall

Listening Sessions

The purpose of these sessions is for church members to have an opportunity to share their thoughts and opinions with the Discernment Team in person. Church members wishing to speak may sign-up using this link:

Sign Up to Speak

If time allows, additional members may sign-up to speak at each meeting. Each speaker will be given 3 minutes at the microphone in order to allow as many speakers as possible over the two sessions. These sessions will not be recorded for distribution.

Listening Sessions will be held:

Sunday, September 18 at 6:00 pm in the Chapel

Wednesday, September 28 at 6:00 pm in Tyson Hall
