Hopewell United Methodist Church will host A Conversation on a Way Forward with Bishop John Schol, Greater NJ Annual Conference, on Thursday, Jan 3, 2019 at 7 p.m.
HUMC members and friends as well as other local United Methodist Church congregations are invited to join us as we engage in courageous conversation.
In February, United Methodists throughout the world will come together to discern how our denomination will move forward concerning issues of human sexuality in the church. A Special Session of General Conference has been called to consider three plans that have been submitted.
The 32-member Commission on a Way Forward was appointed by the Council of Bishops to assist the bishops in their charge from the 2016 General Conference to lead the church forward amid the present impasse related to LGBTQ and resulting questions about the unity of the church.
