My family have been Methodist for over 40 years, but if this occurs we will be changing churches..
Hubby and I have been talking of a move for about a year now and we more than likely will make that move..
right now we have a pastor who is a native South Korean, and he seems very Conservative and does not support liberal ideas. He has a Doctorate Degree and we look for him to move soon...young people in the rural areas just don’t seem to be interested in attending church services..so sad............
I grew up UMC in Texas. My mom still goes to that church.
I live in California now, and there is not a Methodist church that I would go to out here.
I go to a non-denominational church that is conservative in it’s beliefs, but modern in the way they teach those beliefs (rock music, videos, facebook, etc). I miss the more traditional service, but my kids love our church and want to go, and that’s more important to me.
Sad, sad, sad.
The further away from Gospel truth this church goes, the more it will wither and die.
We cannot be voting on ‘what is our truth this year’ because Truth does not change.
