Update: Due to COVID-19 protocols, we did not dedicate pledges on March 15. Instead, we ask everyone to email or snail-mail their pledge cards (info below) to the church office. We dedicate 2020 pledges Mar. 15 By Janet Cofie, Finance Team Lead Since the Sunday after Valentine’s Day, we’ve been looking at what it means to support our church with our prayers, our worship attendance, our giving, our witness and our service, from a place of extravagant love and generosity. Beginning with the March 1 worship service, we are receiving pledge cards for indicating how we as individuals or families will support the church

On January 3, 2020, a statement was released by a diverse team who had been working toward a proposal to resolve the differences between traditional, centrist, and progressive advocates in The United Methodist Church, with regard to how to include LGBTQ persons in its ministry. The proposal, called the Protocol, is receiving widespread support. If adopted by General Conference, it would result in a separation between the traditionalist churches into a new Methodist denomination.
On February 26, 2019, the General Conference Special Session delegates of the United Methodist Church voted 53% in favor of following The Traditional Plan for ALL United Methodist Churches. This Special Session was exceptionally painful for those of us who know the United Methodist Church in Morgan Hill, CA as an inclusive, reconciling and spiritually progressive faith community. In January, 2020, a “Protocol of Reconciliation & Grace Through Separation” was proposed. See more about it in our “A Way Forward” blog.
