A Note From Pastor Bill:
A couple of months ago, we had a joint Town Hall meeting with First UMC Fulshear to talk about the impending division within the United Methodist Church. The time has come to begin what is called a "Discernment Process."
Your WordServe Lead Team voted unanimously to begin this process, which consists of notifying our district (already done), and receiving information from the district that will help shape our discussions and decision making going forward.
I know you may have questions and concerns. We'll be providing some sources that might help answer some of your questions, but if not, feel free to ask your questions by emailing email@example.com. We gather the most commonly asked questions and respond to them. I want you to know that this is not a single-item issue, there are broader issues at play that make the prospect of the future UMC untenable to me as your Pastor.
In the near future, we'll be holding some Town Hall meetings to keep everyone informed and to hear what questions and concerns are out there. But please know this, your Lead Team is navigating the way ahead as good stewards of your trust and treasure, and I'm convinced that God is still in control.
I'm also equally convinced that with your prayers and the Holy Spirit's guidance, the WordServe family will arrive at a glorious future where we continue to preach and teach The Word and Serve the world.
Thanks for your prayerful participation in the process ahead.
