Church-Wide Listening and Learning Meeting
March 20 5:30 pm | Auburn United Methodist Church Sanctuary
You are invited to a church-wide informational meeting led by our Listening and Learning Task Force this coming Monday, March 20, at 5:30 pm in the Auburn UMC Sanctuary. The Task Force was instructed by our Administrative Board to research and understand the divide that is taking place within the United Methodist Church. More specifically, we have been tasked with understanding how this larger divide could impact our local church. During Monday’s meeting we will share our research with you and answer pre-submitted questions.
Should we run out of seating in the Sanctuary, the Fellowship Hall will have overflow seating with live stream video. Additionally, you can watch from anywhere with a WiFi connection via live stream at www.aumc.net/media. This gathering will be recorded and made available online for those who cannot attend or wish to watch the meeting again at www.aumc.net/church-wideupdates. If you are unable to join us Monday evening, we are hosting a viewing of the recorded meeting on Tuesday, March 21, at 10 am in the Fellowship Hall.
Each member present at the Monday and Tuesday meetings will receive a survey on which you may share your thoughts and questions with the Task Force. These will be completed and turned in prior to leaving the meeting. Your name and identity will be kept confidential.
The purpose of these meetings will be to inform the congregation of the Task Force’s research regarding the issues related to disaffiliation from or remaining a part of the United Methodist denomination. This information and your survey responses will be included in the Listening and Learning Task Force’s report to the Auburn United Methodist Church Administrative Board regarding the future of our church.
We hope that you will attend either in person or online. We encourage you to submit any thoughts, questions, concerns, or prayers to us at AUMCListenAndLearn@gmail.com. Thank you for your continuing prayers and support.
Childcare will be provided. If you would like to utilize childcare, please RSVP to Dee Adkins at Dee.Adkins@aumc.net. Kindergarten and above will meet in the gym. Pre-K and under will be in the nursery.
