May as Christian Home Month
WHEREAS, we believe that families in our world, at this hour, stand at a critical juncture, in the midst of destructive pressures that are daily taking their toll; and that The United Methodist Church has the opportunity, potential, and responsibility to respond to the urgent needs of families,
Therefore, be it resolved, that General Conference declare the month of May Christian Home Month, with emphasis upon family worship in the home, worship and program planning in the congregation, and prayer on behalf of families. We call upon the Office of Family Ministries of the General Board of Discipleship to produce resources for the support of Christian Home Month for use in the congregation and in the home.
