A Way Forward Update

At a meeting on May 2, the RRUMC Way Forward Team and Rev. Dr. Steve Bailey, North Coast District Superintendent, updated RRUMC on the rulings and implications of the UM Judicial Council related to the denomination's decision regarding same-gender weddings and self-avowed LGBTQI+ clergy.

Additional information on A Way Forward from the East Ohio Conference includes links to the actual UM Judicial Council decision and the response of Bishop Tracy Malone.

The RRUMC Administrative Council invites anyone who has an interest or concern surrounding the decisions of the United Methodist Church’s special General Conference on issues of sexuality to contact us at: rrumcwayforward@gmail.com or contact Way Forward Team members (Phil Ardussi, Laurie Bruce, Bill Cowles, Tom Dewey, Sally Lenhart, Cindy Schafer) individually.
