From the Administrative Board:

“Where We Stand After the Recent United Methodist Church Decision”

You may have heard the recent news about the United Methodist Church. On February 26, at a Special General Conference in St. Louis, UM representative delegates from around the world voted for a Traditional Plan – a more conservative stance on homosexuality. We want you to know that this recent decision does not reflect the attitudes and opinions of all the people in United Methodism. The United Methodist Church is of not one mind on this issue. We, the Administrative Board at Tunkhannock United Methodist Church, recognize the hurt that this action has caused those in the LGTBQ community.

We feel that the recent action by the UM delegates has not been helpful in creating unity nor in conveying the message of God’s love as we seek to fulfill our mission of making new disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the World.

To those in the LGTBQ community, to our younger generation and to any or all who feel different and not included, we want you to know that each and every one of you is a child of God, of sacred worth and loved by God. We, at Tunkhannock United Methodist Church, seek to embody the spirit of Jesus’ welcoming, redeeming love. We are a body of imperfect individuals striving to learn and work together by God’s grace to do better and love better as we journey through life.

We hope and pray that you will find a message of love, welcome, and acceptance as you step through our doors, and we invite you to participate in our ministries. You have a story. You have a voice to share. Your life is a beautiful thread and a part of a magnificent tapestry that God is weaving together as we learn to love more fully by the grace of Jesus Christ. You are welcome here!
