Our Discernment Process

Dear Church Family,
On this page you will find helpful resources and educational material to make you better informed and aware of the situation that has troubled our beloved United Methodist church for so long. Please read and investigate these resources as they will give you better knowledge of the situation before us. If you have any questions for our team or need some time with a member please reach out by emailing holly@fumcardmore.com. Most of all during this time of discernment for our church please be in prayer for God’s will to be done and the Kingdom of Jesus to be lifted high.


I am writing to update you on the progress of our disaffiliation process. First, thank you to everyone who came to cast a vote. I am grateful for each soul that gathered on July 10th and voted your conscience. The vote for the disaffiliation was 317-yes, 31-no, and 3-abstained. The vote to join the Global Methodist Church was 288-yes and 8-no.


Our leadership team is meeting often to plan for our upcoming denominational change. We will give an update on our disaffiliation process at each Administrative Council meeting. All members are welcome and encouraged to attend. We meet the third Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in room 115 in the Colvert Ministry Center. 


Finally, we invite you to pray and fast on Thursday, October 20th. Our goal is to be prepared for the vote at the specially called Annual Conference on October 21st and 22nd in Oklahoma City. We are fasting together this day to pray for the Lord’s favor over the disaffiliation process at this specially called Annual Conference. 




In His loving service, your Lay Leadership Team; Clayton Benjamin, Barb Carter, Renny Collins, Rev. Dr. David Daniel, Mike Dees, Rev. John Hollon, Roger Hughes, Bob Humphrey, Holly Joy, Clayton Lodes, Dale Wells, Steve Wells
