Congregational Meeting

Congregational Meeting Feb. 10 About "The Way Forward"   
Ahead of the Special Called General Conference of The United Methodist Church, Feb 23 - 26, Dumbarton will hold a congregational meeting following worship on Sunday, Feb. 10.
Ahead of its Feb. 13 meeting, Dumbarton's Church Council has decided to hold a Congregational Meeting -- a listening session about General Conference 2019. The Church Council would like to "take the pulse" of the congregation to assist in the Council's work of deciding whether to issue a statement ahead of General Conference -- such a press release might endorse one of the plans that will be before General Conference or might be a statement of our commitment to full inclusion of LGBTQIA+ people without endorsing any of the plans.
The Church Council will take into consideration feedback from the Congregational Listening Session to determine whether/if Dumbarton UMC will make a statement in the public square ahead of General Conference 2019. All Dumbartonians are invited to this gathering following worship on Feb. 10.
