The Way Forward

Listening Session

While the Commission continues their work, the CoB has asked annual conferences to foster “listening sessions” for preliminary feedback on the proposed way forward . Our meeting will be April 22nd – Central UMC-ABQ at 3 pm.  Members of the One Board will be asked to attend this meeting to represent FUMC-Los Alamos. 

Our objective will be to share information about the process, learn more about the “sketches”, discuss together and with our delegates where are values, hopes, and fears lie as a Conference.  Our delegates will vote on our behalf at the special called 2019 General Conference. 

Questions to be addressed at the Listening Sessions:

  • What are your fears with respect to the current impasse in the Church?

  • For you (personally), what are your most important values and convictions in seeking a way forward for The United Methodist Church?

  • What implications might there be for your local congregation under each of the three sketches?

  • What are your hopes with respect to the Way Forward?

Pastor Steve’s Direction

After the 2019 General Conference event, Pastor Steve intends to have several cluster meetings for discussion regarding the “Way Forward” at FUMC-Los Alamos.  Attached is the link to our beliefs from the Book of Discipline 2016 which will assist us in this journey as we Follow God’s Vision.
