Notes

Note from church:

"Our local church does not have authority to ordain — ordination decisions are made by our regional (New England Conference) Board of Ordained Ministry. For now our official United Methodist denominational policy is that we do not ordain "self-avowed practicing" LGBTQ+ people, but the New England Conference has formally taken a stand of nonconformity with the denomination, and we do, we will, and we have ordained LGBTQ+ people. Our local church would unequivocally, unabashedly recommend a gifted and qualified LGBTQ+ person for ordination, without any prejudice based on sexual orientation or gender identity."
