Leadership Board Update

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 General Conference in the UMC, the formation of the Global Methodist Church, and information received from Bishop Leonard Fairley, the Asbury Leadership Board has decided it would be in the best interest of our church family to hear a presentation on the two pathways of Methodism, their impact on the future of Asbury Church and to inform you of the conference’s approval of a called church-wide charge conference for Members of Asbury Church to vote on remaining a United Methodist Church or disaffiliation from the UMC to align with the Global Methodist Church. 

 

The Asbury Leadership Board has approved the following schedule for the information sessions and congregational vote.  We encourage every member of Asbury to attend one information session and to be present in person on Sunday, October 16th for the congregational vote that will decide the future direction of Asbury Church.  Members must be physically present in order to vote by secret ballot for the called charge conference.  If you have any questions regarding your membership status, please email Wendy in the church office at wendy@asburyraleigh.org.
