Upcoming Town Hall Meetings

This fall, the Church Council entered a time of discernment around Isle of Hope United Methodist Church’s future relationship with the United Methodist denomination. Council and staff are preparing several identical Town Hall meetings this winter, where church members can review basic information and ask questions about what lies ahead if our church remains in the UMC or chooses to disaffiliate.

The five Town Hall meetings will be approximately ninety minutes long, and childcare will be provided for all sessions. One of the early sessions will be recorded and made available for those who cannot attend in person. The five dates are:

This Sunday, January 22 – 5:00 - 6:30 pm

Wednesday, January 25 – 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Sunday, January 29 – 5:00 - 6:30 pm

Tuesday, January 31 – 6:30 - 8:00 pm

Wednesday, February 1 – 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

In addition, on Tuesday, January 24 at 6:30 pm, our Coastal District Superintendent, Rev. David Thompson, will conduct a Q&A information session about the Conference’s process.

Finally, the Superintendent has set our Church Conference date to vote on remaining or disaffiliating for Monday, February 13, at 6:30 pm. Please note the adjusted time. Church members may begin arriving at 5:45 pm to check in and receive their ballot. Every full church member of Isle of Hope United Methodist Church who is present is eligible to vote. Per Annual Conference policy, there is no absentee, early, or proxy voting. A disaffiliation vote requires a two-thirds majority of members present.

Childcare for children 0 years-5th grade will be provided by reservation for all sessions.
