Regarding the General Conference Vote on Homosexuality
Early in 2019, the United Methodist Church voted by a narrow margin to enforce denominational practices regarding homosexuality, disallowing the marriage of same-sex couples and the ordination of openly gay and lesbian clergy. In early 2020, a group of church leaders put forth a proposal for the denomination to amicably split; more info can be found here. This plan has not been voted on yet and is not confirmed.
Regardless, we at First Church want to be very clear we will always be a safe and affirming place for all of God's LGBTQ+ children, period.
First Church is now on an external database of LGBTQ+ affirming churches! Check it out here!
