The Commission on The Way Forward was appointed by the 2016 General Conference to examine all paragraphs in our Book of Discipline regarding human sexuality and explore options that help to maintain and strengthen the unity of the church.  Part of this effort involves intentional prayer for the Commission and its work.  This week, April 2-8 is the Virginia Conference’s week to pray.  Prayer resources can be found by clicking on this link.

Additionally, the Welborne United Methodist Women will meet on Monday, April 10th, at 2:00 p.m. in Nave Hall.  Dave Nuckols will be the speaker, and Dave is one of the 32 members of the Commission, which includes bishops, clergy, and laity.  Dave is the lay leader of the Minnesota Annual Conference, and the son of Welborne’s Emily and Norwood Nuckols. Join the UMW to hear about the Commission’s work thus far, make more UMCOR Health Kits and enjoy fellowship and refreshments.
