Reconciling Ministries

Please join us during the month of February to listen to our “Stories of Love.” The Reconciling Ministries community is sponsoring this series between services so that we can listen to one another and to have conversation about our experiences as United Methodists and about our ministry to the LGBTQ community. We will meet in the chapel the first two Sundays and at the back of the sanctuary the second two Sundays from 10:10 until 10:55. We will hear from several different people about their perspective and history. Some of the storytellers include Kathy Johnson, Juna Spitz, Suzanne McMurchie, Peggy and Dick Muir and John Haase. Come join us to ask questions and to share your story as we look ahead to the future ministries of our church. Questions? Contact Lyn Berry.
