Bishop Leonard E. Fairley is calling a Special Session of the NC Annual Conference to be held on Saturday, Nov. 19, beginning at 10 am. The session will be held in Huff Concert Hall at Methodist University in Fayetteville, NC. The location is a change from previous announcements.
The sole purpose of the called session is to affirm or not affirm the church conference actions of the local churches that are choosing to ask to disaffiliate from The United Methodist Church under the provisions of The Book of Discipline 2016, Paragraph 2553. This call for this special session conforms to the disciplinary requirements found in Paragraphs 369.6 and 603.5.
Registration will start at 8:30 am. The Session will begin at 10 am with a worship service and then move to the question of approval of these requests, adjourning before lunch. We will be the guests of Methodist University, for which we give many thanks. Carpooling will be helpful as there is limited parking.
