The Special Session of the General Conference of The United Methodist Church will take place on Saturday, February 23 through Tuesday, February 26, 2019 in St. Louis, Missouri. Regardless of one’s position on the actions that will occur during this session, the Witness Committee is inviting and encouraging everyone to pray for all of those who are involved and the decision-making process by participating in our “My Space Prayer Vigil”.
The Special Session of the General Conference was called to receive and act on a report from the 32-member Commission on a Way Forward, which was authorized by General Conference 2016 and appointed by the Council of Bishops to examine paragraphs in The Book of Discipline concerning human sexuality, propose possible revisions, and explore options to strengthen the unity of the church.
Please join us on Sunday, October 7th, starting at 6:30 pm, as we celebrate National Coming Out Day and LGBTQ History Month. We are excited to have members from PFLAG Pittsburgh come speak about their experiences as parents, friends, family members and members of the LGBTQ Community. Child care will be provided.
