 Epworth is honored to host Dr. Ashley Dreff of Hood Theological Seminary next Sunday, February 17 at 4:30pm to address the current issues of Methodism and human sexuality.  ALL are invited and encouraged to attend this discussion and Q&A with Dr. Dreff.

Parents bringing their children to TeamJesus and DUH!SCIPLES will find it a convenient time to stay with us to be part of this conversation. Our youth will be attending as its programming for the evening. 

Ashley will share with us her historical research included in her most recent book, Entangled: A History of American Methodism, Politics, and Sexuality, which provides a great foundation for issues around Human Sexuality to be discussed in the special session of the worldwide General Conference of the UMC to beheld in St. Louis from Feb 23-26 to discuss proposals from The Way Forward Commission established by the Council
of Bishops.  
 
Copies of Dr. Dreff’s book will be available for groups interested in a topical bible study ahead. Also, additional resources and links concerning the General Conference will be available. Don’t miss the opportunity to become better informed on the issue and on our Methodist decision-making process.
