We can't know what your experience of church has been in the past. Be assured that regardless of how little or how much, how pleasant or painful, you will be welcomed here at Leo just as you are. We exist to build bridges between people and Jesus, you are not alone.
On September 18th, Leo United Methodist Church had a church conference to vote on the proposition to disaffiliate from the denomination of the United Methodist Church. The proposition to leave the denomination, which required a 2/3 majority vote, failed to carry by a margin of three votes. For some, this was a highly disappointing outcome. For others it was a relief. For all of us, it was difficult. It's difficult still in this post vote reality. There is much for each of us to sort out as individual Christians and as a church family. In the coming days we will have much to discuss. But not today. For now, let us continue to keep the main thing the main thing. We are called to be Jesus, high and lifted up for people. We are called to be ambassadors to a kingdom that's not of this world. A kingdom in which Jesus is still on the throne. Let's focus on that. In the meantime, continue to focus on where God is now calling us to as a congregation serving as faithfully as we can.
