Photo by Linda Laisure
We held our Annual Meeting on Sunday, November 10th.
Many of you showed up and voted to approve the following motion:
"The position of the United Methodist Church regarding human sexuality
is in direct conflict with the faith and understandings of the members of the
Church in Ocean Park United Methodist Church.
Therefore, the Church in Ocean Park UMC declares its intention to
disaffiliate from the United Methodist Church
per paragraph 2553.3 as amended by General Conference 2019.
We understand that this is the first step in a three part process. Disaffiliating will allow us to more fully live into our calling
to help create a more beloved community for all people."
