The Nephesh Sunday Class, a "Reconciling Community,"
invites you to read an Open Letter to the delegates to our General Conference, urging them to "prayerfully consider what it means and what it will take for the UMC to become a fully inclusive church where the beloved community of Christ is reflected in word, deed, and action." After reading the letter, we hope that you will choose to add your name, joining over 1400 others.


Reconciling/Welcoming Statement
Following Christ's command to love one another, the Nephesh Class of St. John's United Methodist Church recognizes that all people are of sacred worth and affirms that we are a reconciling community. In celebrating the diversity of God's creation, we respect and welcome all people, regardless of age, economic status, faith history, ethnicity, gender, mental or physical ability, marital status, sexual orientation, or gender identification. In the words of John Wesley, "If your heart is with my heart, take my hand." With open hearts, open minds, and open doors, we share God's love with the world.

(This statement was adopted on October 18, 2015.)
