FAITHFUL AND INCLUSIVE-THE BIBLE, SEXUALITY, AND THE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH : It is no secret that the United Methodist Church is divided over the issue of sexuality.

This class helps participants develop their own perspectives on the Bible’s passages related to homosexuality while offering a safe space to navigate through this complex issue. Included in the class will be presentations related to the upcoming 2020 General Conference and what the future might hold for the United Methodist Church.
