What is the Way Forward? 
The Way Forward is a major movement in the United Methodist church to determine our social policy on human sexuality issues.  A worldwide commission was formed to discuss various options and final vote will take  place at a special General Conference in February of 2019.  Although we don’t know what the outcome will be, there are several links listed below that can help you become informed on the issue and be aware of any updates.  Please take some time to review the information.  And please pray for our denomination as we determine our Way Forward.
