On Saturday, October 29 a Special Annual Conference will be held virtually. The sole purpose of this Special Session Called Annual Conference is to ratify the disaffiliation of local churches seeking to disaffiliate from The United Methodist Church over matters of human sexuality. Paragraph 2553 of the Book of Discipline governs this process.
More information about disaffiliation is on the conference website at https://vaumc.org/a-notable-development-on-the-futureof-the-united-methodist-church/.
There was a Zoom meeting to further discuss the upcoming General Conference as well as information on disaffiliation. The recording of the event and the presentation slides are now available. You can access both at this link: https://vaumc.org/team-jeremiah-will-answer-questions-over-zoom-may-31-7-p-m/.
