Standing in solidarity with LGBTQ Methodists

It's Time

itstimeReconcilingWorks stands in solidarity with LGBTQ and ally United Methodist Church (UMC) friends as they meet for the UMC General Conference today through May 20 in Portland, Oregon. Over 4,000 delegates, UMC officials, Board and Agency employees, local volunteers, and others from around the world will be on hand as this global denomination will vote on whether or not the UMC will continue to discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer members and clergy.

It’s Time to end the hurt that’s engulfed so many individuals and families in the UMC. It’s Time to welcome and celebrate everyone in the UMC and the whole church.

ReconcilingWorks wishes our UMC friends hope and courage as they face opposition and fear. We especially pray for strength for those who will put themselves and their public ministries on the line for the sake of a church and world that welcomes, includes, and celebrates all people.

What you can do: 

Please keep the General Conference in your prayers.
Join Reconciling United Methodists and other supporters at a special worship service on Sunday, May 15, at 3:00 pm, at First United Methodist Church, 1838 SW Jefferson, Portland, OR. The service is offered by the Love Your Neighbor Coalition (LYNC), a collaboration of a number of organizations within the UMC that includes Reconciling Ministries Network.
If you are able to attend the conference in person in Portland, please join them as a visitor at any of the plenary sessions and/or daily worship services held at the Oregon Convention Center on MLK Jr. Blvd.
Please join our partners at Reconciling Ministries Network and the Love Your Neighbor Coalition UMC in telling the church “#ItsTime for change” by speaking out on social media, using the link below to “Twibbon” your profile picture, and by pledging to pray for General Conference delegates!
