Conference Members Have Multiple Opportunities to
See, Study, Question Alignment Prior Nov. 13 Voting
Voting members of the Central Texas Annual Conference will have opportunity to vote on the new conference alignment plan at a called session on Saturday, Nov. 13, hosted at First United Methodist Church of Mansfield.
In preparation for that time, the Conference Alignment Task Force will provide multiple means for members to see, study and ask questions about the alignment plan.
First, on Friday, Oct. 1, the task force will launch their comprehensive report titled “The Exodus Project: A Transformational Roadmap for a Church in Transition” on the conference website (www.ctcumc.org).
Second, District Alignment Information Meetings will be held throughout the conference to explain the alignment plan and allow for questions. All are welcome to attend any of the meetings listed (see below), although they are especially aimed at lay members of Annual Conference and conference clergy.
Third, at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24, Bishop Mike Lowry and Alignment Task Force Chair Rev. Mike Ramsdell will conduct a live-streamed event from the TV studio at First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth. The live stream will be accessible on the conference website (www.ctcumc.org) for all those who are interested in the alignment.
Questions may be asked during the streaming via digital format. Instruction will be available closer to the program date.
Throughout the information sharing process, Dr. Georgia Adamson, assistant to the bishop and director of Mission Ministries, will be the information contact person on alignment matters. She can be reached during normal conference business hours at 817-877-5222.
