Dinner and Dialogue on a Way Forward

Starts:     Aug 12, 2018 @ 5 p.m.   Ends:     @  

On Sunday, August 12 we will host a potluck dinner and dialogue about the Commission on A Way Forward, from 5 to 7 p.m. Our facilitators will be Revs. Jo Ann Cooper (former St. John’s Associate Pastor) and Ed Cooper, co-pastors of First UMC, Pineville. We invite you to bring a dish to share and an openness to learn and be in fruitful conversation. After dinner, we will hear an overview about the Commission on A Way Forward’s proposals to the special session of General Conference about human sexuality, followed by tabletop dialogue, with questions that foster unity, build trust, and deepen our relationships with one another.  

The Commission on a Way Forward was proposed by the Council of Bishops and approved by the 2016 General Conference to do a complete examination and possible revision of the paragraphs in The Book of Discipline concerning human sexuality and explore options that help to maintain and strengthen the unity of the church. 

  Be Welcomed. Be Loved.

We are a Christian community called to share our gifts through worship, witness and service so that others will know God and become disciples of Jesus Christ.
