With the coronavirus disrupting lives worldwide, General Conference organizers determined they have no choice but to postpone The United Methodist Church's top legislative assembly, which was scheduled for May 5-15 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Commission members do not yet know how quickly they can announce new dates.
First Church is a member of Reconciling Ministries Network, which works to help UMC members and churches become intentionally inclusive especially for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-gender people (LGBT). Reconciling Hearts is the local ministry here at First Church for anyone who is interested in developing and nurturing a culture that is welcoming and affirming, and seeks to build a more inclusive church.
