Is it a “church” or a club?
This could be the end of the Methodist Church.
I will go Bible home-school when Methodist start granting gay marriages.
UMC? How surprising!
then it;s not a church which reads from the Holy Bible and it;s a palce which liberals, homosexuals set up and theuse this to promote themselves as well as pretending to be with \Christianity
why I left my church tough it was not UMC
I don;t need some imposter telling me what to sing or how I should ignore the Bible
What a slap in the face to God THIS is!
Warning: Usage of metal umbrellas in this parking lot is STRONGLY discouraged!
Not a church. A den of sin, and a den of liars. The people who would attend such a place are not Christians, and I will never recognize them as such.
And when people of faith take their marriage elsewhere, the church loses money and dies. Not like there is a Pope to Xcom anyone so I do not see an issue.
Other than homos closing ANOTHER church...which is the intent to begin with.
it is a club and you are inviting i mean invited to join in and since you will be in north carolina anyways
They’ve gone full demonic.
First wife was UMC so naturally we attended her denomination instead of mine. We had one pastor who was great friends with Tom Harkin, the guy who ran Nicaragua and Gov. Vlasick. Another was a female pastor who lasted exactly one year. EVERY single sermon was about gay rights.
“Come out of her my people...”
The Bush family kind of Christianity
There are queer bait Methodist churches in all large urban ares —even Houston, Texas
I belong to a Bible believing / bible teaching UMC congregation.
Where’s a divine lightning strike when you need it?
Green Street is a Reconciling Congregation, open and affirming of Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, Transgendered and Straight people. While the United Methodist denomination continues to wrestle with issues around sexual identity, Green Street seeks to be a witness to the wider church community by living out the motto of open minds, open hearts and open doors.
The wheat is steadily being winnowed from the chaff.
