Constitutional Amendments Set for Vote at Annual Conference

When Annual Conferences meet this year, one of the major items of business will be voting on thirty-two (32) proposed amendments to the Constitution of The United Methodist Church.  This promises to be a daunting task, even for those Annual Conference members who were present at General Conference when these amendments were approved and referred to the Annual Conferences. The sheer number of amendments makes decision-making a challenge.  In an effort to help folks sort through the myriad of issues that are addressed in these proposed revisions, MFSA is providing resources, both in print and on the national office’s website at

Whether you are a delegate this year or only an interested member, you should plan to attend the May meeting to see what is proposed and hear MFSA’s positions on these important decisions for the United Methodist Church.
