Courageous Conversations (4 weeks)
Thank you to everyone who joined us for these important conversations in November 2023.
In the fall of 2023 we surveyed the church around some of their beliefs about the future of the United Methodist Church and the issues around human sexuality that are facing both Bethel and the UMC. The answers to that survey are only a snapshot of those who answered the survey in that moment of time. The reality of the survey shows us that we are a congregation of diverse beliefs.
