IMPORTANT STATEMENT FROM ST.  PAUL’S PASTOR BETTE SOHM regarding the broader United Methodist Church policy on homosexuality, voted on at the February 2019 Special Session of the General Conference:

On January 1, 2020, the “Traditionalist Plan” went into effect in the United Methodist Church. What this means is that it is now unequivocally against the rules for same sex couples to be married in a United Methodist Church, or to be married by a United Methodist pastor. It is also against the rules for a self-avowed practicing homosexual to be an ordained elder in the church. We do not know what this year’s General Conference will bring. We do not know how The Church plans on enforcing this. We do not know what will change in this year to come. But we, the people of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, know who we are. We know where we stand. In November 2015 the congregation voted to join the Reconciling Ministries Network, a grassroots organization of United Methodist churches across the nation that offer their full ministry to persons of all sexual orientations and identities.  Read the full statement here.

 

DINNER CHURCH: A little prayer, a little music, a lot of fellowship!  All are welcome Thursday, January 6, at 6:30 PM.  More information here.

 

ADULT STUDY: Join us on the second and fourth Wednesdays for an adult study of “Opening Ourselves to Grace.”  All are welcome.  Come anytime.  The next meeting is January 22 from 7:30 to 8:30 PM. Information about other adult studies is available here.
