Discernment in the UMC

More Information and Resources

The Discernment Team spent more than a year discussing and reviewing documents and resources regarding the splintering of the United Methodist Church. Whenever possible, the Discernment Team prioritized and reviewed primary sources for information.  In times of high anxiety and uncertainty, rumors, unverified information, speculation, and opinions often flood our inboxes, social media feeds, and conversations. 

As a result, we encourage you to get information about a specific organization from that organization’s official publications, statements, and leaders. We also encourage you to review information from the United Methodist Church (www.umc.org), UM News (https://www.umnews.org), and the Global Methodist Church (www.globalmethodist.org). The information and resources provided on this page are supported by primary sources whenever possible.
