Richmond First Unite Methodist Church continues our discussion in response to action taken by General Conference 2019. These actions include the affirmation of the United Methodist Church’s traditional stances on homosexuality. In particular, the General Conference affirmed language in the Discipline of the United Methodist Church the prohibit the ordination of “self avowed practicing” homosexuals and prohibits United Methodist clergy from performing services for same sex unions.
The web content is to help the church be aware of and participate in our work of preparing a public “Statement of Values” addressing these issues, and a set of policies describing how our church will live out its Statement of Values.
