On Sunday, February 17th Pastor Rebecca will be sharing an update about the upcoming Special Session of General Conference during worship. There will also be an Informational Meeting with details about the 3 plans that are being presented to General Conference following the 2nd Service. We invite anyone who would like to attend to join us in the Sanctuary at about 11:40am that day, and thank you to the Church Council for sponsoring this time!
Just a reminder that General Conference is our global gathering of United Methodists — there are elected clergy and lay delegates that represent each Annual Conference — and together they set the official policies and procedures for our denomination. This Special Session will be meeting in St. Louis, MO from February 23rd — 26th to talk about inclusion as it relates to our LGBTQ+ brothers, sisters, co-workers, and friends. It is an important conversation and it will certainly impact the ways we live into that vision of “open hearts, open minds, open doors.” You can find more information at: www.greatplainsumc.org/cowf
