Uniting Methodists strongly support the One Church Plan which the majority of both the Commission and the Council of Bishops have endorsed. Additional information to help in understanding the content of the One Church Plan and its benefits will be appearing on this site over the next days. Please check back periodically for updates.

Uniting Methodists is a movement rather than an organization. As a movement we are striving for greater inclusion and genuine representation in pursuit of shared goals. The statements found on this website represent our current consensus about important questions before the church. We invite suggestions, critique, and engaging conversations from persons across the UMC. The Uniting Methodists Leadership Team views this work as iterative and certain to be added to and enhanced over time.

* Uniting Methodists is a not-for-profit movement made up of members of The United Methodist Church and is not associated in any way with Room for All, Inc., an LGBTQ advocacy organization in the Reformed Church in America.
