Church Conference Vote January 29, 2023

Church Conference Vote on Disaffiliation

January 29, 2023

Thank you to everyone who attended the voting yesterday afternoon.  185 people voted. A super majority vote of 66.6 % was required by the rules of paragraph 2553 of the Book of Discipline to disaffiliate from the UMC.  FUMC’s vote did not achieve a super majority having only reached 60%.
We extend appreciation to Reverend Thomas Salsgiver, our conference representative and Reverend Cathy Boileau, our conference superintendent for overseeing yesterday’s vote.
First United Methodist Church will continue to serve the Lord by serving our community and the world as we have for the last 200 years.  Each member is a vital part of that ministry and your continuing prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness are essential to our vitality as we lift up Jesus Christ, that all people might be drawn to Him!
