  Congregational Withdrawal

At the January 12, 2019 District Board meeting, a Guide for Congregational Withdrawal was approved. While we wish to be in conversation with congregations who feel estranged from our denomination, we recognize that reconciliation is not always possible. This Guide is a way forward for both the District and the Congregation.
