The Connectional Table discerns and articulates the vision and the stewardship of the mission, ministries and resources of The United Methodist Church as determined by General Conference and in consultation with the Council of Bishops.
In an effort to foster ongoing dialogue about topics of interest to the broader church, the Connectional Table will host a series of online conversations which will focus on human sexuality, our mission and United Methodist church law. The first event on April 29, 2014 included a panel of United Methodist leaders and theologians The next event will be streamed online on November 1, 8-10 a.m. CT. Panelists participating in the November 1 live stream are members of the Council of Bishops who contributed to the book Finding Our Way: Love and Law in The United Methodist Church, as well as Neil Alexander, the Editor and President of United Methodist Publishing House.
The Connectional Table has been collaboratively engaged in:
- Identifying four areas of focus for churchwide ministry;
- Fostering and sustaining vital congregations
- Sponsoring research on the State of the Church;
- Laying the groundwork for equitable change as the Church grows worldwide.
