UMC: Finding a Way Forward


On February 23-26, 2019, the United Methodist Church will hold a special session of its top decision making body (called “General Conference”) to discuss and deliberate on three proposals from our Council of Bishops that address the issue of human sexuality.

  • What are these three proposals?

  • How were they arrived at?

  • What’s at stake for our denomination if one of them is adopted?

  • And how might any of this affect us here at McKendree UMC? 

Here at McKendree UMC will we be addressing these questions in a special four-session class hosted and facilitated by our appointed pastors and lay leadership on the following dates (childcare is provided for all sessions):

  • Wednesdays at 5:45pm in the Music Room on November 7, 14, 28, and Dec 5

  • Tuesdays at 6:30pm in the Lockridge Fellowship Hall on November 13, 27, Dec 4 and 11

(Note: topics each Tuesday will be a repeat of the topics from the prior Wednesday)
