“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” -John 13:35
Today, we find ourselves in the midst of a schism within our denomination. Christ Church must choose a future for our church based on our theological beliefs and convictions.
Pastors, lay leaders, and members are entering into a forty-day discernment period, started July 31, 2022. This time of discernment will prepare us for a vote which will determine the future of our church. We are standing at an important junction for our congregation. In this process, we aim to strengthen our foundation of traditional Wesleyan Christianity. Join us in seeking our Lord’s leadership in this process by following the steps outlined below.
