!!! Important United Methodist Church Decisions to be made !!!
Important Votes to be taken to guide Wesley Chapel in it's selection of Methodist Denomination in the future!!!
I want to share these links and articles with all of you as we prepare for the Church Council meeting on June 20 at 6:30 pm. Please be aware that we are planning to take an initial vote about what happens next for Wesley Chapel on that date, and anyone who currently holds a position on a board has voting rights at Church Council. However, even if you do not hold a position at the moment, the next stage in the voting process will be open to all church members. If you plan to vote either now or later, please join in on the research and discussion from the start so that everyone is on the same page moving forward.
The first three links are a videos from both sides of the conversation about the UMC and the GMC. They will make the most sense if you watch them in the order listed below. The last link speaks of our third option, which is disaffiliation altogether. The articles attached to this email aim to lay out the similarities and differences between the two denominations.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions between now and June 20.
Also, even if you do not plan to attend these meetings, please be in prayer for the Church, for Wesley Chapel, and for each individual as we make some potentially difficult decisions.
Rev. Rob Renfroe of Good News Magazine explains the current divisions within the United Methodist Church and discusses how Traditionalist Methodists should navigate future decisions.

Thankful for each of you, and for the chance to grow in Christ together. Again, if you need more information or have questions leading up to the vote, please email me at email@example.com or call at 443-956-5639.
Have a blessed day!
