DISCUSSION GROUPS BEFORE VOTE
To remain part of the United Methodist denomination
Dear Church Family,
On June 25th, the Asbury Memorial Church Council voted to approve requesting the District Superintendent to call a "Church Conference" for the members of Asbury Memorial to vote on whether or not they want to remain part of the United Methodist denomination under the new policies that go into effect January 1st. I will be mailing all church members a copy of the new policies.
When the date of our Church Conference is selected, we will let you know by way of a mailed
letter, email, the newsletter, and by our Sunday announcements. In the meantime, we will be having
discussion opportunities for Asbury members to ask questions and to share their thoughts and feelings
about this important decision.
We realize that if we only have one discussion opportunity, some people will not be able to attend
due to a conflict with their schedule. So we will be offering five discussion opportunities. We also realize
that it is difficult for some of our members to meet in the evening, so three of the five sessions will be in the
Six members of the Church Council will be the facilitators for these discussion-listening sessions.
Two will pair up for each session. There is no need for you to sign up to attend the sessions. All you need
to do is show up.
Besides these discussion opportunities, I am always happy to meet with people individually. If you
would like to discuss this vote or anything else with me, please email or call me so we can set up an
appointment. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are the days and times of discussion groups:
- Tuesday, July 16th at 5:30 pm
- Monday, July 29th at 1 pm
- Sunday, August 4th at 1 pm
- Monday, August 19th at 7 pm
- Sunday, September 1st at 1 pm
