New: Fall Report Guide!

Fall Reports can be tough, but hopefully this handy dandy website can lend you a hand and make things easier. If not, feel free to call Makayla and we will work through things together. 

Disaffiliation Information

In churches where the church council and clergy sense that a large portion of a congregation may wish to consider disaffiliation from The United Methodist Church under Paragraph 2553 of the Book of Discipline, they should first reach out to their District Superintendent. 

Churches that discern that they would like to request a church conference to vote on disaffiliation will make their request to their District Superintendent. Superintendents will receive requests between January 1 and February 28, 2023. After February 28, church conferences will be scheduled by the District Superintendent. 

All requests made in this timeframe will be fulfilled. The schedule will be set to ensure completion and efficiency (scheduling will not be based on the order in which requests are made). There is no advantage or disadvantage to requesting earlier or later in the window. 

Note that the district superintendents will not activate any disaffiliation requests from any church prior to the 1st of January and they will not receive any disaffiliation requests after February 28th. 

Also important to note:

  • No church is required to vote or required to consider a vote to disaffiliation from The United Methodist Church. 
  • Be in communication with your District Superintendent.
  • There is no hurry or need to rush the process of discernment if your church is considering disaffiliation.
