Faithful and Inclusive: The Bible, Sexuality and the UMC allows you to gain an understanding of how United Methodists can be both obedient to God’s Word and fully welcoming to LGBTQ+ persons in the church.

Join Rev. Ashley Allen for this six-week life group as she talks about creating a safe space to navigate through this thorny issue, relying on the biblical-interpretation approach of Methodism’s founder, John Wesley.

These subjects will be covered:

How United Methodists Interpret Scripture
Old Testament Passages
The Influence of Culture on How We Read the Bible
New Testament Passages
The Jesus Ethic: What Did Christ Say?
Where Does the United Methodist Church Go From Here?

There is no book to purchase, just bring your Bible.

After you register for the class, Rev. Ashley Allen will provide you a link to the class Zoom account.
