HEADLINE NEWS: “40-Year Ban on gay Clergy Struck Down”

Delegates at the United Methodist Church General Conference on voted overwhelmingly on May 1 to strike anti-homosexual language from the Book of Discipline.  Read the UM News report and Pastor David’s letter to the congregation.  In 2019, with a Welcoming Statement (see above) that underscored “ALL MEANS ALL,” St. Paul’s joined a nationwide grassroots movement among United Methodist congregations to declare total acceptance of people of all sexual orientations and identities into the full ministry of the church.  The 2024 General Conference vote regarding clergy lifts a dark cloud from over the entire denomination.
