Should Thomasville First become a Global Methodist congregation?

In May, we informed you that the Administrative Council made a recommendation that this church vote on joining the Global Methodist Church. This recommendation was made after much research into different Methodist/Wesleyan denominations that this church might consider joining after disaffiliation from the UMC. The church-wide vote will take place on Sunday evening, August 27, 2023 at 5:00pm in the Fellowship Building. Only members of the church will have a vote. Nursery and programming for children will be available.

Below we’ve provided some links to help you make an educated decision.
