DISCERNING OUR FUTURE
Upcoming Discernment Townhall Sessions Regarding the Future Affiliation/Disaffiliation of SFUMC with the United Methodist Denomination
As a full/professing member of SFUMC, you are invited and encouraged to attend one of the following upcoming Discernment Townhall Sessions to learn more about the decision facing our church regarding future affiliation/disaffiliation. The two-hour sessions will be conducted January 24th and 25th and will be held in the Fellowship Hall. There are three different sessions offered--one in the daytime and two in the evening. The daytime session is intended for those who cannot attend evening meetings. Space is limited at each session and church members who wish to participate should sign up for only one session to make space for others to participate. You can also call the church office at 225-635-3763 to reserve your spot. Reservations will be received on a first-come-first-served basis. The results of all three sessions will be summarized and shared with the congregation. A lite meal will be provided at each session and a nursery can be available upon request for the evening meetings.
The Townhall sessions will be facilitated by a neutral facilitator. This will be an opportunity to hear presentations from our facilitator on the affiliation/disaffiliation decision SFUMC is facing to assist individuals in their own discernment. The sessions will also provide an opportunity for participants to discuss the matter with other participants and hear answers to questions submitted by church members. The sessions are designed to be a dialogue, rather than a debate, and will be tightly managed by the facilitator.
