NEWS AND NOTES
Way Forward Meeting Recap…
Just as the world around us has been struggling with human sexuality and proper boundaries for healthy sexual expression, so has our denomination. We are part of The United Methodist Church which has been prayerfully considering this topic for many years. On Wednesday, April 18, we had a healthy conversation and prayer time with members of Asbury Church regarding this very topic. If you missed the meeting and would like to check out the additional resources that were shared at the event, please check out the links below. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Lead Pastor, Tom Newman.
