A WAY FORWARD – STATEMENT OF INCLUSION
Declaration of Support of LGBT Persons
The 2016 General Conference charged the Council of Bishops to discern A Way Forward concerning issues of human sexuality for United Methodists around the globe. This council will convene in February 2019 in a special session of General Conference.
In that regard, the Kansas City Chapter of “Wide is God’s Welcome,” an advocate group for LGBTQ persons, has invited all churches in the Great Plains Conference to offer the opportunity for members to sign a Declaration of Support for the full inclusion of LGBT persons in the United Methodist Church.
A signatory form and the statement will be available Sunday June 3 and June 10. You may also sign the online statement by
